Jesus and the Sabbath

Jesus and the Sabbath

A Sabbath day of rest is a gift from God to humanity.Do you treat it like a blessing or a burden?

Often we are so focused on honouring God by following rules that we miss God’s real, deeper purpose in giving the Sabbath.

Then Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made to meet the needs of people, and not people to meet the requirements of the Sabbath.” -Mark 2:27

The best way to honour God with the Sabbath is using his gift in a way that blesses you. Because that was always God’s intention.

Sabbath = rest. Here are 4 other words to help you practice Sabbath in a way that blesses you.
* Control (let go of it)
* Worship (do it)
* Fun (have it)
* Freedom (explore it)

In a world that is insanely burned out, Sabbath is a desperately needed gift. God knew you couldn’t thrive without it, and Jesus taught us how to make use of it in ways that bless us.
