The Sabbath or A Sabbath… A new/old way of thinking… Tonight at 5:30pm EDT in Middletown, DE LIVE!
The work cited below is Mark Buchanan’s The Rest of God: Restoring Your Soul by Restoring Sabbath. VIA Dr. Skip Moen <a href="http://
“In a culture where busyness is a fetish and stillness is laziness, rest is sloth. But without rest, we miss the rest of God: the rest he invites us to enter more fully so that we might know him more deeply. â€œBe still, and know that I am God.â€ Some knowing is never pursued, only received. And for that, you need to be still. Sabbath is both a day and an attitude to nurture such stillness.” p. 3
If we don’t understand God’s view of work, we cannot understand His view of rest.
“The opposite of a slave is not a free man. It’s a worshipper. The one who is most free is the one who turns the work of his hands into sacrament, into offering. All he makes and all he does are gifts from God, through God, and to God. . . . . Virtually any job, no matter how grueling or tedious . . . can be a gift from God, through God, and to God. The work of our hands, by the alchemy of our devotion, becomes the worship of our hearts.” p. 24
God is more interested in changing your heart than changing your circumstances. His way is not escape. It is acceptance.
Living for the weekend is a sign of two things: a misunderstanding of work and a mistaken view of time.
