Out Of Service - #5757
It may be that you've worked hard for the Lord over the years and you've done many of the jobs there are to do and you're tired. But now you're saying, "I served my time." The truth is we don't have enough time to serve the Lord who gave everything for us. We've only got maybe 70 or 80 years! That's not near enough! There's too much to do. There are too few to do it. Please don't hang out an "Out Of Service" sign!

Rest in the Bible: Matthew 11:28

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Resting Comfortably In the Chaos - #8216 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
Well, with my mouth near his ear, I just started singing a soft little tune that I’ve sung to my children, and now to my grandchildren. Our little guy just totally relaxed and he fell asleep in the middle of it in spite of all the craziness going on around him. ... I’m Ron Hutchcraft, and in that tender moment, something hit me. “This is you, Ron, in the arms of your Heavenly Father.”

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Accelerators Without Brakes - #4153
Jesus is, of course, referring to God's command to have a weekly sabbath - a day that is "for the Lord your God," according to the Ten Commandments. "On it you shall not do any work." (Exodus 20:10) Now, I know some Christians debate which day should be the Sabbath; please don't send me letters and booklets and verses about that - a lot of folks already have! What I'm talking about here is the Sabbath principle - that God has built into our creation a regular time for rest, for recovery, for spiritual renewal. In fact, it is important enough that God made it the focus of one of His Ten Commandments!

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Stopping To Recharge - #5272
A cell phone needs some down time to recharge so it can serve again, and so do you. In fact, God created you that way. That is the Sabbath principle that He built into our creation, and He does not intend for us to work all the time. He made us so we would take regular rest.
