Lessons from the Body Shop

 It has been and continues to be a huge revelation to me that the Sabbath is not only a memorial of the fact God created us, but a testament to His ability to deliver us from the bondage of sin and recreate us in His image once again! As I hammer and grind on a helpless old car and watch the gradual transformation I picture Jesus in the carpenter s...hop slowly molding rough wood into something purposeful and beautiful, knowing that some day he would be transforming rough fishermen into fishers of men. It is so restful to know that I am the car, helpless, yet brimming with potential if left in the Master's care. Hammer blows are painful (trust me!) and the restoration process is not for the faint of heart, but the results are stunning. The rest that comes from knowing I am in Good Hands, and that He will faithfully complete what He has started is a rest I can enjoy all day every day. It is the rest that Hebrews 4 speaks of. It is joyous rest! "There remains therefore a rest for the people of God!"

Rest everyone, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom!
