“For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.” Hebrews 4:10
To get the full context and understanding of this verse, you can read the passage in Hebrews 4, but the main thought here is resting in the accomplishment of Christ’s work at Calvary. His resting the 7th day of Creation was a picture of how we are to rest in the finished work of Christ after the fulfillment of the Old Covenant. We cannot hope to earn or keep our salvation by our good deeds. It is only on the merits of Christ that we can come to God.
