SABBATH – Week 1
OURSELVES (Genesis 2:1-3; Hebrews 4:9-10)
We are addressing the principle of Sabbath or rest at the end of a rotation of hard and satisfying work. It is the day when we put aside all labor and focus on God especially without the distractions of dutiful work. In our society, it seems as though rest equals laziness, where we have become proud of our busyness. However, rest does not equate to idleness; instead, it is necessary and vital to the efficiency and health of body, soul, mind, and heart. The word “Sabbath” simple means “to cease.”
At the end of every day, our bodies require rest and at the end of every working cycle - for us, a week - we need rest. God thought of it first and demonstrated it for us so that we should live likewise. How faithful are we to this Holy – Separated – Sabbath Day, with which God has gifted us?
