Do you lack rest? Do you know how to relax? Is stress ruining your health?
Unfortunately, chronic stress in today’s society is of epidemic proportions. Men, women, children of all ages are afflicted by stress.
What if you could have a respite from the press of the world? Slow down the pace of life? Every week?
At creation, from the beginning of time, God gave us just that. Even though He cannot meet face to face with us like He did with Adam and Eve, we can still meet with Him on the day he blessed and made holy.
Yes, there are those who argue that the seventh-day Sabbath was only for the Jews. Think about that. Were there any Jews at creation? Others think that the seventh day of the week is no longer holy. What a concept! In the tomb Jesus rested during the 24-hour period of the Sabbath day. Also, the Sabbath will be celebrated in heaven and for eternity. Just take a look at Isaiah 66:22–23. Knowing that we would need a reprieve from the cares of everyday life, God provided for us a day of rest that would last for the ages of eternity. So the question needs to be asked. Why would God change the day of rest for a brief amount of time in the grand scheme of universe’s history?
