Jesus my Sabbath rest

img_2381Why do you go to church on Sundays? Does it really have to be Sunday?

One of the most important teaching that we often overlook is the Sabbath. The Sabbath was a command to rest for a day to reconnect with God. It is part of the 10 commandments of God to Israel.

However, for Christians under the new covenant, the Sabbath rest is found in Jesus alone not in a day of worship. Sabbath rest is when we find rest for our souls that emanates from our trust in the ever dependable grace of God. Sabbath rest is when we find peace in our hearts as we feel secured that our past sins are forgiven, we walk with God at present through our problems and we have hope for the future.
