For six days, I have enjoyed my creative work of writing.

Today I will rest.

After sharing one quick seed…

“Jesus said to them, ‘The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.'”

Mark 2:27 (NASB)

A day of Sabbath rest is a gift.

In the Old Testament, the Sabbath was a command.

But Jesus gives us an opportunity for rest.

So today, I will not burden myself with legalistic restrictions. But I will rest from some of my usual work – even work that I love.

Because in God’s love, He has given us something good.

Will you receive His rest?
