What is the Sabbath?

In America, the Sabbath day is most often associated with going to church on Sundays. But there is more, much more, to the rule of the Sabbath than church attendance.

Originally the Sabbath was a day of rest. God gave us the gift of Sabbath because He knew that our body, soul & spirit needed rest after a stress filled day of hard work.

The early Jewish tradition included worship as the second part of the Sabbath observation.

Jesus seems to share the Sabbath ad a day of service, volunteerism and the sharing of Good News.

The early church added worship and communion to the observation of the Sabbath. And for most Christians, the Sabbath was moved from Saturday to Sunday.

Are you taking advantage of rest, worship and volunteer service in your life? It truly is valuable. In fact, we weren’t meant to live without it.

Try observing the Sabbath this weekend…

If you must work or are busy on Sunday, attempt to find Sabbath rest, worship & service at another time this week.

You will be blessed…
