Sabbathing In Place
My understanding of Sabbath in Christ is that we are no longer commanded to follow the Law of Moses including observing the Sabbath. Jesus is our Sabbath and he is with us always. In Christ our Sabbath never ends.
As Lord of the Sabbath, Jesus had the right, power, and authority to dispense it in any way He pleased. The Lord of the Sabbath had come, and with His death and resurrection He became the fulfillment of our “Sabbath rest.” The salvation we have in Christ has made the old law of the Sabbath no longer needed or binding. When Jesus said, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath” (Mark 2:27), Jesus was attesting to the fact that, just as the Sabbath day was originally instituted to give man rest from his labors, so did He come to provide us rest from laboring to achieve our own salvation by our works. Because of His sacrifice on the cross, we can now forever cease laboring to attain God’s favor and rest in His mercy and grace.
The “one day a week no phone” idea is a good one!
insightful, funny, challenging, and important. if you listen to ministry podcasts, this should be on the top of your list.
Much to Ponder
"Episode 29: Curious about Violent Entertainment (Part 1)" provides the listener with much to ponder. Brad Swope demonstrates thoughtful and thorough knowledge of this topic, and Sam, Matt, and Aaron's questions and honest reflections encourage the listener to think and reflect more deeply on how violent entertainment affects our culture and our soul.
And of course, the laughter in response to Beefs from Beyond and My Two Cents is good medicine.
