The True Sabbath Rest

(Gen. 2:2-3) "And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

So be careful to give one another the time to grow up into Christ. Just as we don’t expect little children to grasp the mature content of adulthood, neither should we expect instant maturity within the Church. The above grace described by Pau…
