The Gift of God: The Sabbath
Let’s face it: we live in a restless culture. Have you ever noticed how stopping your work for the day produces a kind of unease; a kind of fear that you’ll get behind or that you’ve left something undone? Do you ever have the nagging feeling that you just haven’t done enough – not just in your work or your homework, but in your spiritual life? Do you ever feel as though you just haven’t done enough to please God? Jesus says to you, come to me all you who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest for your souls. The Sabbath is that rest. It is a gift to be enjoyed.
