The observance of taking a day off of work was established from the beginning.
And God was the first one to rest.
He created the world and all that was in it.
The air we breath, the bodies we inhabit, the wonder of the natural world.
Then He took a day.
He rested and celebrated.
He appreciated and enjoyed.
He called it Sabbath and told humans to do it once a week with Him.
Take a day, once a week to rest, celebrate, appreciate and enjoy this beautiful life with God.
You will be surprised at how much you need it.
You need it.
It is an offer that still stands and because of Jesus it is available to all who need a spiritual rest as well as a physical one.
Hebrews 4:9 says that “There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his.” (NIV)
Take a day, maybe this day, and let it revive your soul.
