The Sabbath…

Posted on Posted in Potential, Trust

                                                    … was made for man!

What is the Sabbath all about?
Jesus gave us this clue…

      The Sabbath was made for man,
      and not man for the Sabbath.
      Mark 2 27

The Sabbath is also called the 7th day,
the day in which God Himself rested

      And on the seventh day God ended His work
      which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day
      from all His work which He had done.
      Gen 2 2-3

God had finished creation for He had
… done and completed everything man would ever need!
God stopped doing as it was all done,
… all done, ready for life, for life in abundance!

BUT… man messed up, rejecting their need of God
… with the result that man now had to work in order to live.
However, God is still the loving God that He is,
and He still wants us to live in His fullness.

      Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest,
      Heb 4 1

      or we who have believed do enter that rest,
      Heb 4 33

In other words, God is saying to us
Come to ME where all that you need is prepared
by simply following Jesus instructions,

      seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,
      and all these things shall be added to you.
      Matt 6 33
