The Sabbath Rest

“Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” (Matt 8:20)

Jesus was searching for a resting place, a specific day when He could rest from all His works, that is, a Sabbath rest for His divine being. We are that day, that Sabbath, where our savior can lay His head and rest. Simultaneously, He is our Sabbath rest, because we are in Him and He is in us. This is a profound mystery; how we are joined together in one spirit and how both the human and the divine find rest when they are amalgamated and become one in spirit. This is what the entire creation is eagerly anticipating; the Sabbath day when it will be liberated and enter its perfect rest when reconciliation is consummated.
