Christ Jesus Is the Sabbath Rest that Remains for the People of God Forevermore
The Lord brought the sons of Israel out of Egypt “with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm,” in order to give them rest (Deut. 5:15). So has the same Lord, Jesus Christ, come in the flesh to fulfill the Law and to become our Sabbath Rest. He brings us out of sin and death and gives us rest in His own crucified and risen body. Though it is given “in jars of clay,” the life of Jesus is thereby manifested in our bodies (2 Cor. 4:7–11).
