Rest – Lesson 31

The message is clear and strong. Jesus sat down because his work was finished. He accomplished everything the Father sent him to accomplish. He satisfied the justice and holiness of God. He satisfied his Father once and for all. He successfully turned aside the wrath of God. God judged our sin, condemned it, and he punished it. But that was not the end goal. The fact that God has declared you righteous in his sight is proof that all your sins have been forgiven. They have been sent away from you as far as the east is from the west. The work has been done. It is time to rest and enjoy your freedom in Christ. (Chapter 10, pg 75)
