For God’s Sake Rest
Discover the Pleasure of His Rest
“Rest? Who needs it? I have too much to accomplish for God!” Do those words sound familiar? Have you ever said them to yourself or others? Jim Anderson lived the same lifestyle that a majority of Christians — especially pastors — often follow. He tried to be all things to all people while striving to do more at the expense of his health, personal relationships, and his walk with God.
Twenty years later Anderson has learned the secret of rest — a Sabbath-rest. In For God’s Sake Rest!, Anderson shares his scriptural studies, personal journey, and insights from those who have discovered the much-neglected treasure of a Sabbath-rest. “As parents take pleasure in their sleeping children, God takes pleasure in our rest,” says Anderson. “He shows us how to be at rest from work and at work.”
