Labor Day and Jesus

Happy Labor Day! I find it odd that most of us don’t work on Labor Day. Why not call it Non-Labor Day? The holiday actually began as a way to recognize the American labor movement and celebrate laborers. The greatest labor day of all happened 2,000 years ago. Jesus labored on the cross and declared “It is finished.” He labored for us, dying for our sins, so we don’t have to work to earn salvation. We could never work hard enough to earn it anyway. So, just as you are enjoying this Labor Day, resting from your work, each day in Jesus we can rest in His work.
