Counter Culture (Rest)

We are to be counter culture as Christ followers, we are to push it back and not get sucked into it.  More and more people are going on stress leave, get burned out, take medication for anxiety, increased incidences of cancer and heart issues because they can’t get off the tread mill.  People are not taking their days off, not taking a vacation, not having a Sabbath days’ rest.  

​God worked.  We are to work.  God rested.  We are to rest.  After completing His work of creating the heavens and earth, God rested on the seventh day.  It was the climax of God’s week in Genesis 1:1-2:4, and it is to be the climax of ours.
