Human beings have an unimaginable destiny. In this short segment, Dr. Kelly Anderson explains how we are destined to be “god-like,” sharing in God’s very divine nature and ruling over the cosmos with him in eternity. This is not some New Age concept but historic Christian teaching.
And it is utterly amazing when we think about it! Just as God is bringing about a divine restoration from our broken relationship with him, Sunday sabbath rest is intended to be restorative. In this preview to her conference talk, “Sabbath Rest as a Key to Human Flourishing,” Dr. Anderson explains that God calls us to a weekly sabbath—a break from life’s toils to free us from self-imposed slavery. This call to sabbath requires trust in God and his grace, which he gives freely.
