Product Description

This Bible study examines the meaning and place of “rest” and “work” in the Bible, providing a relevant roadmap for our everyday lives. Workplace Christians who wonder if the Bible’s Sabbath commandments still apply to us today will find this to be a practical, meditative, and helpful guide.

People thrive when we work and rest in a rhythm that deepens our connection with God. Yet finding real rest can be challenging. From the wandering Israelites who didn’t trust God’s provision, to workplace Christians who wonder whether Sabbath commandments still apply today, many ask “why” and “how” we should rest. Through biblical analysis and real-world examples, this in-depth study of rest and work elevates both activities to their God-given importance.

These Bible studies are part of The Bible and Your Work Study Series. Each book contains Scripture references, thought-provoking questions, and prayers to help you explore what the Bible says about work and apply it to your life in positive, practical ways. The lessons in each chapter are designed for thirty-minute lunch breaks, although they can be used in other formats as well.

- Created to Rest: Entering into Joyful Communion with God
