In this week’s passages on sabbath, we hear Jesus face the religious establishment’s legalism surrounding the day of rest. We'll ponder our view of sabbath and how we might want to shift our view and practice of this day.
Today Chloe Lindsey is our audio voice as we pause in three New Testament passages on the Sabbath and hear what Jesus had to say to the religious leaders about the day of rest.
Welcome to the third week of Embracing God's Rest. Are you full of questions about how to best embrace a day of rest? Are you struggling with a legalist view of the Sabbath or wrestling with the desire to completely throw out the commandment to rest? Does it just feel too hard? Today Brianna Hines reminds us that Jesus tread that thin and rewarding line between rejection and suffocation of the Sabbath, and she encourages us to ask two simple questions when deciding how to spend the Sabbath.
Today we welcome two lovely Bible study leaders, Lorraine Thomas and Sara Nelson, to our Q & A feature. Both women began their professional lives in the financial world and understand Brianna Hines' comment that America is a work-drunk country. It's a joy to share a glimpse into the way Lorraine and Sara practice sabbath.
As we study and learn to practice sabbath, how we rest demonstrates what we believe about God. Today in our Practice post, we'll ask you what is one step you might take this week to build trust with your Heavenly Father.
