Exodus 20:11 ” For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but He rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”

As it gets closer and closer to Christmas we get busier and more anxious about getting everything done.  So this Scripture is giving us a heads up as to what we can do this Sunday.  It’s called a Sabbath rest…a reminder of God’s creative and redemptive work, but also something that was first demonstrated by God Himself on the seventh day.  The Sabbath rest is a God-given gift…to serve not enslave us…to be a blessing not a burden as we find rest in Him.
