Ten Commandments: Sabbath Day (Part II)
Topic: Laws of God

And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him. And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. (Matthew 12:10-12 KJV)

 

As the days of Pharisees, we sometime mixed up God’s laws with our moral laws. Even though God said that we’d need to be rested on the seventh day, we’d decide to work more hours and make busy to ourselves. Don’t be misunderstood that some of the services need to be available 24/7, such as hospital, grocery stores, gas stations, fire departments, and etc. And some stores could close on the seventh day, such as Wal-mart, restaurants, and etc. Unfortunately, our nation becomes money-maker nation, we may forget how we’d need to rest and refresh our spirits, souls, and bodies.

 

We often see many people go to the yoga session, Eastern Mysticism religious practice, to try to regenerate their bodies. Without thinking what they are doing, this practice teaches them to reinforce the energy upon themselves. No God. If your church would have yoga session, then your spirit would be risked your relation with God. Yes, there should be relaxing exercise activities for our spirits, souls, and bodies, but it should have limited. We should really need to focus on God and His words. Why not turn on praise and worship music for us to do exercise. Read and meditate on God’s Words. Work for God and not just for our needs.

 

We have limited ourselves to worn our bodies. Do you know why Pharisees saw surprise that Jesus was working on Sabbath Day (Matthew 12:2)? They worried that He’d be breaking their laws. Sabbatical law didn’t come from any man. God created the sabbatical law for us to have quality time with Him and people around us. Jesus didn’t break the sabbatical law, but He fulfilled it.

 

The Ten Commandments are not religious laws, but to build our relationship with God and people. This is why Jesus said that we need to love God and other people. It sums up all the laws in the Bible.
