Come unto Me
When God told Adam not to eat of the tree in the midst, this implied that he was not to work there, for he had been placed in the garden to till and keep it, and no tilling is needed where there is no eating. Thus the seeds of the Sabbath were already planted, for God himself rested on the seventh day. And thus when man sinned, he did so by breaking the Sabbath rest. He worked where he ought to have remembered the work of God. Yet also today, he is called to rest: Come unto Me, I will give you rest, says he. For there remains a rest for the people of God. So let us rest in him, trust in him, and leave off the wicked thought of working in the place where we ought to remember and place confidence in the work of Christ. Sermon for midweek of Trinity Second-Last. Also the video is here.
