TOPIC: Observe The Sabbath Day (Anglican Devotional 24 May 2021)

READ: Deuteronomy 5:12-15 (NKJV)

‘ Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded you.
Six days you shall labor and do all your work,
but the seventh day [is] the Sabbath of the LORD your God. [In it] you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger who [is] within your gates, that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you.
And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the LORD your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the LORD your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.
THE MESSAGE:

The fourth commandment in the covenant relationship between God and Israel is to keep the Sabbath day. Sabbath is the seventh day of the week, a holy day on which no work was permitted. It was a day of worship and rest for the Jews. The Lord commanded His people to observe that day for some reasons:

He finished the work of creation in six days and rested on the seventh day (Genesis 2:2);

Ad 15

To allow individual men and maid servants, strangers animals to rest from physical activities (verse14);

To remind Israel of how He delivered them from their bondage in Egypt.

Today. as New Covenant believers, we observe Sunday the first day of the week as our day of rest. This is to remind us of the day that Jesus rose from the dead and had victory over death. It is a day of worship and honour to God and rest from our physical work. As we observe Sundays as days of rest, we must understand that this rest goes beyond the physical. There is yet another rest (Hebrews 4:9) which is ultimate and found in Christ through the new birth. (Matthew 11:28-29).

PRAYER: Lord, strengthen me to keep the Sabbath in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
