It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Another translation says to “work . The Christian's Work and Rest is an unchanged, high-quality reprint of the original edition of Hansebooks is editor of the literature on different topic areas such as research and science, travel and expeditions, cooking and nutrition, medicine, and other : Joel Edson Rockwell.   In these seasons when people are not able to rest properly, they need not feel guilty, but instead turn to God with hopeful expectation for future rhythms of rest and work. “A Sabbath rest still remains for the people of God” (Hebrews ), both from an eternal perspective and in this lifetime. Rest, relaxation, recovery, and even worship are things that we get to do, though arguably, all Christians should worship. The author's style takes a little getting used to.

Exodus (KJV) Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.

When we worship on the first day of the week, we say that Jesus is Lord. When we rest one day in seven, we say, “I am not God. God is God.   Question: "What does the Bible say about rest and relaxation?" Answer: “Rest” is defined as “peace, ease or refreshment.” “Relax” means “to become loose or less firm, to have a milder manner, to be less stiff.” The Bible speaks quite highly of rest. It is a repeated theme throughout Scripture, beginning with the creation week (Genesis ). Is the book of James to Jewish Christians, Jews, or tribulation saints? They are Jewish tribulation saints. The author of this question expounded on his question in his email to us. For the benefit of the readers, here is the rest of his question so you can understand the answer.   Dan Story, author of the book, Should Christians be Environmentalists?, is a former agnostic, turned Christian. Soon after becoming a Christian, Story felt compelled to write Christian apologetics materials.
