Topic: Laws of God
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. (Exodus 20:8-11 KJV)
I believe the most law that Americans are neglecting today is the Sabbath Day, the day we’d need to give honor to God by resting upon Him. This day of the week should be designated for us to have quality with Him rather than busy ourselves to death. No wonder most of us have some kinds of sicknesses in our bodies. Jesus said in Matthew 6:34, “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” Being worrying would bring us to problem in physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
God created Sabbath Day for us to rest upon Him. He didn’t create us to be His slaves. No! He wants to establish imitate relationship with each of us. We are His and are not belonged to the world. There are many people who think that living in this world is the only hope for them to have long and happy life. Yes, that was true before Adam and Eve felt into sins. Unfortunately, that’s not in case for now until God would restore this world to original estate.
We are living in today’s society without having at least one full day to rest ourselves from our busy schedules. It’s not good health habit. We are the temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16) and we need to take care our bodies. I’m not going into piercing or tattooing our body theologies today.
We need to understand that our bodies have limit to live in this world. God doesn’t want to see that our bodies would be wasted. After this earthly life, our physical bodies would return to sand, but our spiritual bodies would end up either in Heaven or Hell forever.
Are you resting upon Lord Jesus Christ? Sabbath is not just on Saturday or Sunday. It can be any on any day of the week. But we need to have some quality times with him every day.
God planned to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to us to pay our sins, so we can have free access to God and develop personal relationship with Him. Would you like to have personal relationship with God? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God.
