Is there anything more elusive than rest? Whether we’re too busy to rest, have too many undone tasks to rest, or we feel too guilty for taking time to rest—rest doesn’t come easy. Come chat with us today as we talk about a biblical theology of rest. We’ll talk about how the Bible addresses both physical and spiritual rest by tracing the theme of rest from Genesis to Revelation.
Today’s episode is in celebration of the brand new Bible study released this week from The Daily Grace Co, Rest: From Eden to Eternity. If you want to study the topic of rest deeply in the Bible, you can check out this study here.
