Grace at Week’s End
For those whose pride is built on effort, grace is the wounder of our pride. Grace tells us that our six days’ labor—sweat and care, commanded by the Lord—can never give us life eternal. At the end of all our labors, grace is the healer of our week. Grace tells us that the peace to which the Lord invites is the Sabbath of release—the rest of God—and our sweet foretaste of a life forever gifted to us. Lord of the Sabbath, so provide that we may be at peace with rest, and let You save us from ourselves.
