Mark 2

Mark 2:27
The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.

The Sabbath is a gift. A day to stop and catch your breath. A day to refresh and repose. A day to regain your rhythm. A day to take a deep breath and relax. It’s a gift from God to mankind. However, what kind of gift is it when it’s obligatory? Under such expectations, it ceases to be a gift entirely and becomes a burden. A demand. A drain. That was never God’s intent. And, yes, Jesus has today become our Sabbath Rest. But, as Jesus said, a day of rest was made for people. It’s still a New Testament category. And it remains a gift. So, if I were you, just know, that God doesn’t give white elephants. This is a gift you don’t ever want to pass up.
