Remember the Sabbath day, and keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work. But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work—you, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the alien resident in your towns. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and consecrated it.
Exodus 20: 8-11
We are concluding our sermon series of values and virtues needed for our Ark, so we are prepared when the storms and floods in our life come. This Sunday we will speak about the fourth commandment to Remember the Sabbath. Amazing that God has more to say about this commandment than any of the other commandments.
This being Labor Day weekend, many of us will gather with friends and family either at home or perhaps we will try to squeeze in one more “Get-away” before the weather changes and the more structured time begins. I hope you will remember the commandment and keep God in your celebration and time away.
Being intentional of inviting God into all the places we go and the relationships we have does make a difference. It makes a difference in how we see the beauty of creation, how we act and react in relationships, and most importantly, it moves us closer to God and becoming one with Him/Her. (1 Corinthians 6:17)
May your weekend be safe and may you find true rest in God, knowing you are in the His/Her Presence.
In Christ’s Light and Love,
