7 KEY TEXT Mark 6:31 NIV “T HEN, BECAUSE SO many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.’ ”

8 Rest and Restoration I NITIAL W ORDS {262} F ROM THE BEGINNING, even in the pre- Fall world, God’s intention was for humans to work. And to rest from work, as well. Especially now, as fallen beings thousands of years removed from the tree of life, we must remember that our bodies have limitations, and, therefore, rest is vitally important.

9 Rest and Restoration Q UICK L OOK 1. The Need for Rest (Matthew 11:28-30) 2. The Daily Rest (Mark 6:30-32) 3. The Weekly Rest (Genesis 2:1-3)

10 Rest and Restoration 1. T HE N EED FOR R EST Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV “ ‘C OME TO ME, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.’ ”

11 1.The Need for Rest REST IN GOD’S PRESENCE {266} T HE REST THAT Jesus offers here is more than physical rest. It is rest for the soul. It includes freedom from the pain and guilt that accompany the human struggle for acceptance through good works. We can rest in the promise that we are accepted by God because of Jesus’ perfect works and certainly not our own imperfect ones.

12 Jesus speaks also to those who stagger under the burdens of life, whatever they are. God knows what our struggles are, He knows what our burdens are, and He offers us to lay them at His feet, trusting in His loving- kindness and care for us. 1.The Need for Rest REST IN GOD’S PRESENCE {266}

13 Rest and Restoration 2. T HE D AILY R EST Mark 6:30-31 NKJV “T HE APOSTLES RETURNED to Jesus…. Then Jesus said, ‘Let’s get away from the crowds for a while and rest.’ There were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn’t even have time to eat.”

14 2. The Daily Rest A B ODY R EQUIREMENT {268} “T HE HUMAN BODY requires daily rest. Studies on sleep deprivation show a variety of negative effects. These may include increased risks of diabetes, obesity, poor school performance, traffic accidents, injuries, and fatalities—even psychotic behavior.

15 Science’s discovery of the circadian rhythm, in which the body works on a daily 24-hour cycle, with specific release of hormones at certain times of the day. “Sleep is worth far more before than after midnight. Two hours’ good sleep before twelve o’clock is worth more than four hours after twelve o’clock.” Manuscript Releases 7: The Daily Rest A B ODY R EQUIREMENT {268}

16 For Better Sleep: Exercise daily. Keep your room at a comfortable temperature. Avoid eating for two to three hours before sleeping. Avoid tension and excitement before sleep. Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills, or caffeine. 2. The Daily Rest A B ODY R EQUIREMENT {268}

17 Genesis 2:1-3 NKJV “T HUS THE HEAVENS and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work … and rested on the Seventh day from all His work…. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work….” Rest and Restoration 3. T HE W EEKLY R EST

18 3. The Weekly Rest A P ERPETUAL S IGN {270} W E NEVER MUST forget that the Sabbath is a day for our benefit. It is for reflection and enjoyment of the wonderful gifts our God has given us. It is a time to contemplate God’s goodness. The Sabbath is a perpetual sign of our recognition of His love.

19 Besides all the spiritual benefits, the Sabbath provides us a time to step aside from the toil and struggles and stress and fatigue of the week. Sabbath is God’s way of allowing us, without guilt, to truly relax, to rest, to take it easy and unwind. Sabbath provides a way for our bodies and souls to get the rest they so often need. 3. The Weekly Rest A P ERPETUAL S IGN {270}

20 Child Guidance 397 F INAL W ORDS {272} “T HOSE WHO MAKE great exertions to accomplish just so much work in a given time, and continue to labor when their judgment tells them they should rest, are never gainers. They are living on borrowed capital. They are expending the vital force which they will need at a future time. … The physical strength is gone, the mental powers fail.”
