Tim Keller sums up quite nicely what Sabbath means today, “Only Jesus offers you a 'finished work' to rest in. In fact, the very definition of a Christian is not just someone who admires Jesus, emulates Jesus, or obeys Jesus. A Christian is someone who "rests in his finished work" instead of your own. Remember, God was only able to rest in Gen 2:1-3 because his work was finished. A Christian is someone who knows that it would be quite all right if he or she died tonight. You've already finished your work--everything that actually has to happen within your life-time has happened. The rest is gravy, icing. Gravy and icing is quite tasty, of course--but not absolutely necessary.” Because of Jesus essentially our work is finished. Yes, we labor and toil day after day but our final rest… our eternal rest is found in Jesus and I can rest in that.
