March 9, 2022 – You Rest, Matthew 11:25-30; Episode 2
In a world of distractions and constant motion, God gives His chosen people rest. He instituted the Sabbath in the Old Testament, making a part of His Law a day when all His people refrained from work. Episode 2 shows the various characters of the Chosen gathering to celebrate the holy Shabbat meal together. Mary Magdalene’s meal with Christ bridges the gap between the Old and New Testaments. Now, as chosen children of God, we are called to find our true rest and peace in Christ Jesus, the Lord of the Sabbath.
Matthew 11:25-30 25 At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; 26 yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.[a] 27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
