Part 16: Knowing His Best...Walking in Rest!
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Knowing His Best...
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 ESV
Walking in Rest!
One of the greatest things that God delivers you from is the struggle to save yourself. Salvation is a work of rest. It is a completed work; nothing needs to be added to it...it is a total work; nothing needs to be done to improve it...it is a final work; nothing needs to happen to change it. The rest of salvation frees you from the bondage of trying hard enough or being good enough to gain God's favor. Resting in His finished work means receiving His salvation as a free gift, given to you by His grace...having a righteousness that is not your own, given to you by Christ...enjoying a new life that changes you, brought to you by the presence of His Spirit.
