The Spiritual Discipline of Rest

Richella Parham turns to the Bible to show us that whilst the structures of our day may no longer be as it was in the time of Exodus, our human need for rest remains a constant, as does our unchanging and gracious God.

"Surely the need for rest is not a new development, nor is the instruction from God to rest a new instruction. God commanded His people: ​“Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work. But the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work” (Exodus 20:9 – 10). 

But perhaps the need to take rest seriously, to undertake it as a spiritual discipline, is more needful today than it has ever been."
