Leisure Suits You

“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all our work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God.” >Exodus 20:8-10

In the 1970s, leisure suits were the ultimate combination of style, comfort and relaxation. But most people would agree that wearing that suit today would be a serious fashion faux-pas. But God tells us that leisure suits us all well.

God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. He didn’t rest because he was tired or needed a cosmic coffee break. He was simply setting the example for us. He knew that we would have the tendency to overwork and under-rest. And he also knew that our tendency is a formula for frustration.

God wants us to reserve one day each week—to recover our strength, realign our lives, and most of all, remember him. It’s true that everything we do should be an act of worship to God, but the Sabbath is a day that God commands us to set aside for rest.

When we make rest a priority, our lives will be restored, our priorities will be refocused, and our relationship with Christ will be re-energized. Make it your priority to wear your leisure suit and reflect on all that God has done for you in your life. It is only then that you will discover the amazing benefits that God has in store for you.

Prayer

Lord, You set an example of rest and reflection at the beginning of time. Help me to follow that example so I can discover the great things you have in store for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen. 

Today’s Evotional was inspired by the Study Guide RetroThis is a 6-part study where we leverage what we’ve learned in the past to help us bridge the gap between our priorities and commitments today. (Includes a Leader’s Guide, Creative Notes and Youth Notes for each session.)
