“Someone missed his/her nap.” We used to say that about cranky children. We now say it about friends our age when they are out of sorts. The writer of the New Testament letter to the Hebrews tells his readers to be careful to not miss the rest God has for them. The rest God offers in Christ is to save us from the frustration of living life solely by our own strength and our own efforts. And, the ultimate frustration is that if we live our earthly life without resting by faith in Jesus, we will live in eternity experiencing God’s wrath rather than His peace. There is a rest we dare not miss.
