God worked for 6 days creating the Earth and rested on the 7th day. He therefore blessed the 7th day and set it aside as a day of rest - the Sabbath.
- A holiday (holy day) is something you take after you work hard.
- A holiday is something you take first, before you work hard.
Where do we fit in?
What is a healthy relationship between work and rest?
Do our good works earn us anything?
So, if the Sabbath is neither a reward for hard work, nor a holiday, what is it?
How can we ensure the Sabbath is a joyful day of worship which inspires hearts young and old?
PS. If you didn't laugh because you're frustrated by the second paragraph and want to sit me down for a Bible study — relax — I was just setting up the joke. Yes, the Sabbath is the 7th day for some Christians, too! Now, get to work! lol
The Sabbath is God's party and I have an invite!!ReplyDelete
I think my good works, if in fact there really are any, earn me the right to say that my belief must be genuine. ie: I am kind to people I don't like (at least to their face (good work), coz I believe Jesus says thats the way He wants things - it's what He did and it's best for me to follow. Soooo - if someone wanted to know if my belief in God is genuine, they might look to how I act and deduce from there. As for my good works, impressing God - yeah nah - he just checks my heart and knows if I'm genuine or not!
Although, I think God is gobsmacked with you!
