Has your soul felt rest today?
It was wonderful to be in Karis Church worshiping the Lord with my brothers and sisters.
The sermon focused on idolatry (Exodus 32:1-33:6), which tied in well with my post from yesterday about cracked pedestals. The gist of the sermon was roughly this: like the gold-powdered water that Moses made the Israelites drink in that passage, idolatry leaves us with a bitter taste. But Jesus calls us away from idolatry to worship.
There were a lot of great points, which, unfortunately, I couldn’t get down fast enough, but I did note one quote from Tim Keller:
Fear-based repentance makes us hate ourselves. Joy-based repentance makes us hate our sin.
How have you been learning to rest this month?
Today is Day 13 of 31 Days of Rest.
