God is Great!

February 14, 2014

I chose to connect last Friday to this Friday both in theme and musician. We are visiting about God again with the help of the David Crowder Band singing “Oh Great God Give Us Rest.” Just like we looked at last week, God is Holy. He is greater than anything we know of. He has commanded us to take rest.

This is a particularly important concept in our society. We work, work, work. I know a person whose job can bring a demand upon him to work for one month straight. Barring bad weather, that means for thirty days straight he would be at his job, which requires physical labor day in and day out. No rest. While that is an occasional thing for him, for many it is close to the norm.

God has told us to take a Sabbath each week. All He asks is for us to surrender one day per seven to rest and glorify God. For most of us, Sunday is the Sabbath. But what is you work on Sundays like many firefighters and law enforcement officers do? Then chose one of your days off and treat it as the Sabbath. In other words, honor the Sabbath and rest.

Focus again on God’s glory and finding a way to honor the Sabbath. Worship Him!

  1. My supervisor at work is a Seventh Day Adventist and we had some interesting discussions this week about the Sabbath. It got me to thinking about how often we can make Sunday a production and just another with “appointments” for worship and church. Trying to be more intentional about making it a day of rest with the Lord and connecting with other people! Love this reminder!

    • Look at the concept of Sabbath from a pastors point of view. Pastors work on Sunday so where is their Sabbath? Pastors must carve out a day of the week for them to rest. Even more difficult when they are bivocational. But, a Sabbath is needed.

      Blessing and thank you for commenting.
