rest in what Jesus did for us by faith or we can get wrapped up in law

As Christians its important to rest in what Jesus did for us by faith or we can get wrapped up in law. Isaiah 28:12 to whom he said, “This is the resting place, let the weary rest”; and,
“This is the place of repose”–but they would not listen.
Isaiah 28:13 So then, the word of the LORD to them will become: Do and do, do and do, rule on rule, rule on rule; a little here, a little there–so that they will go and fall backward, be injured and snared and captured.
“Come to me, all who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
It’s the supreme art of the devil that he can make the law out of the gospel. – Martin Luther
Therefore, this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken. Isaiah 28:16
And now, take care that you do not make sport of him, or your bands will be made strong; for I have had word from the Lord, the Lord of armies, of an end, of a complete end, which is to come on all the land. Isaiah 28:22
SO we need to take his rest seriously.
