Day 148

LORD OF THE SABBATH

Then Jesus said to them,
"The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."
Luke 6:5

 

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, it's useless for you to work from morning until night, seven days a week. Not only does your body need rest, but your spirit and emotions must recharge, as well. Just as I ceased my creation work after six days, you, too, must take time to celebrate life — and to enjoy My presence. Worship is vital to our relationship. When you love Me with all your heart, soul, and mind, how you spend the "Sabbath" will not be an issue.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

I hear so many opinions on how to spend Your day, Lord. Is it Saturday or Sunday? A day of rest or a day of worship? Is it a day for refusal or a chance for renewal? Whatever it means, I know You created that day for our benefit — and for Your glory. Jesus, You are Lord of the Sabbath.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Sleep is sweet and love complete when we rest under the covers of God's love.
