Rest from Our Labors



Rest from Our Labors. No man is an island (or so the saying goes); before God everything we think, say, and do is revealed. The only thing that matters in this life is that we serve the right God!

12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. 13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.”

Revelation 14:12-13, NKJV




Rest from Our Labors


Here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.



Many of my devotions have centered around knowing God, but have you ever thought about God knowing you?



No man is an island (or so the saying goes); before God everything we think, say, and do is revealed. We spend so much of our life thinking about pleasing those around us. It is important that we wear the right clothes, join the right clubs, and have the right friends. It is also important that we do not associate with the wrong people. God calls all of these things hay and stubble, good only to be blown away by the wind.



The only thing that matters in this life is that we serve the right God! Instead of fashioning a god more to our own choosing, we must take care to worship and serve the God of the Bible. In John 10:14 we are told, I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. Jesus knows His sheep, and the true sheep know him.



What awaits the true sheep of Christ? "‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.” What a wonderful conclusion to these devotions on spiritual rest. We are not saved by our works, but our works do verify our true faith. Even in heaven our works will follow us; in heaven God will grant us eternal rest from our labors.



When God says, Here are those who keep the commandments, will that include you? Pray that God would reveal Himself to you and graciously give you the ability to live in obedience to His commandments. In the end, that is all that really matters!
