From Friday sundown to Saturday sundown, we are invited…or rather…commanded (remember the 10 Commandments?) to take a break and rest. And who wouldn’t want to go on vacation every week? So even if it is tempting to work, I resist…and just chill with my God ;) You should give it a go too.
It’s not easy to let go of “important” stuff at first but bowing down to Him and acknowledging that He is most important of all and that He is in control of everything so we can trust it all to Him for 24hours..that we can entrust our life to Him..has a certain disarming charm.
Sometimes, I use the time to bond with my friends. Other times, I just stay at home resting. I do spend a bit of time reading from the Bible and praying. Most of the time, there is food..for Sabbath is a feast! Though, it can be a spiritual feast as well :D I have spent Sabbath outdoors just enjoying God’s creation and wish to do it more in the future. I have also spent part of Sabbath worshipping (coz I’m part of the church choir but even if I was not, I still love worshipping Him with songs!
“The Sabbath was made to meet the needs of people, and not people to meet the requirements of the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord, even over the Sabbath!” – Mark 2: 27-28
