The Gospel, Work and Rest

In the same material from which I posted this quote earlier in the week, I found this one:

Apart from the gospel people remain restless in their work and labored in their rest. The gospel enables people to rest while working because the work that justifies them was accomplished in Jesus -- they don't need to work to give them significance any longer. The gospel also enables people to truly rest while not working, because they know that God is always working -- they don't have to worry that their lack of work will stop the world from spinning.
