Memory Verse - Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Discussion Questions:

  1. Read through Genesis 2:1-3. We recommend using the questions from the DNA Meeting Guide to help guide your study of this text. The guide also gives your DNA group a simple structure to work through the passage and discuss together.
  2. Getting to the Heart - In rest, we learn to pay attention to the things under the surface. The fears, worries, desires, longing and to trust God with them. What do you need to trust God with today? Are you looking to your job, your children, your friendships, your city, your vacations, your shows to provide a rest that cannot be gained?
  3. Living the Way of Jesus - Sabbath Rest is a gift to be received not another mountain to climb or task to accomplish. The Sabbath is an opportunity to take God at his word that we can trust him enough to slow down, to reflect on what is & to delight. To see that he is God and we are not. Do you believe Him? Do you believe you can trust Him?
