Sunday’s Coaching Sabbath:
Sabbath is not about worship in a building or about a day of worship, but about the One we choose to worship. We were created for worship–we will worship something or someone. Do we need to worship on a certain day–how do we worship? What is Sabbath or Sabbath rest?
“The Sabbath is a day when we enter a dance with God and others and experience a beauty that takes our breath away,” stated Dan B. Allendar in Sabbath.
Shabbat (Sabbath) means:
- Be Still
Jesus honored Sabbath rest to exemplify to His disciples, “Now you rest.”
- Read Matthew 11:28-12:8: “Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light…your disciples are doing what is not lawful on the Sabbath…the Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.”
A yoke is “a rabbi’s view of the law, or God as Father.” Jesus was saying to take the view of His Father and rest in knowing that He is your Father. He also enjoyed the food on the Sabbath, which he picked from a field of His Father’s creation. Jesus enjoyed the Sabbath when he healed the sick, even at some religious groups’ bitter discretions.
How will you experience your Sabbath? What will you enjoy today?
