RUN/REST Day 35

Godโ€™s desire for you to rest is something God wants FOR you, not FROM you.

๐Ÿ“– ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—”๐——: Mark 2:23-28

Sabbath isnโ€™t usually a popular topic of conversation. You probably donโ€™t text your friend saying, โ€œHey, howโ€™d you Sabbath yesterday?โ€ But the Sabbath was a BIG DEAL to the Jewish people. In fact, they were so hyped up on the Sabbath that they started to make their own rules about it. Thatโ€™s why in these verses, the Jewish religious leaderโ€™s response to Jesus โ€œbreaking the Sabbathโ€ law is so, well, savage. Why do you think the Jewish leaders didn't welcome Jesus new ideas?

Following Jesus is not a set of rules. Itโ€™s a relationship that isn't based on our behavior or actions, but is rooted in Jesusโ€™ love for us. Sabbath isnโ€™t a rule to follow but an invitation to rest and remember what God has done. Take your own Sabbath for a few minutes. Find a quiet place to be still. Set a timer on your phone, close your eyes, take some deep breaths, and focus on Godโ€™s love for you. Thank God for that love.
