Be Still

Be still. Rest. Not in the poetic sense of refreshing or finding your second wind. Not in a sentimental “mood picture” sort of way. Look forward to the promised rest. Look back at Christ’s finished work. 

Hebrews 6

7 For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God. 8 But if it bears thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to being cursed, and its end is to be burned. – Hebrews 6:7-8

The New Covenant in Hebrews 10

Jesus Christ brings about a new Levitical consecration. This consecration is the initiation of the new covenant. This consecration is applied to a covenant community that can still fall away in the wilderness by profaning the holiness of God.

28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore. – Hebrews 7:28 (KJV)
