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.
This week we’re studying several sections in which God asks His people to trust Him to provide as they cease from their work one day a week and as they forgive debts, release slaves, and allow their land to lay uncultivated every seven years. Click for study questions and a prayer prompt.
Welcome to the second week of Embracing God's Rest, a five-week study of sabbath. Today Brianna Hines continues our look at rest and how we struggle to accept the risk — and the blessing — associated with resting for a set time each week.
Karen Culver and Faye Miller share with us today about how they have viewed work and rest over the years and how God is teaching them about His good gift of sabbath rest.
