SABBATH-Week 1 // A gift from God // Pastor Kate Murphy

Scripture: Deuteronomy 5:12-15

Dear Church,

God has a gift for each one of us… a good gift: sabbath.

If you heard that Christians don’t ‘have’ to keep sabbath, if the word sabbath makes you feel guilty, if you think sabbath is only about rules and obligations and not doing anything enjoyable, I have good news for you…sabbath is not what you’ve heard.

Many of us do not recognize that sabbath is a gift from God to each one of us. We haven’t been taught that God gives us sabbath to enjoy.  We don’t know that enjoying sabbath is serious and essential spiritual work.  Surprise! Sometimes, spiritual growth feels delightful.  This is one of those times.

I hope you’ll join me as we learn how to receive and enjoy the gift of sabbath together.  You’re not going to believe how good this is!
