Jesus and the Sabbath



The LORD set the pattern from the beginning of creation. The LORD applied it as He gave them manna in the wilderness. Six days of usual work. Seventh day was for rest and time with God. But after generations of ignoring the Sabbath, the LORD exiled them from the promised land. When the children of Israel returned, the Pharisees educated and enforced the Sabbath rules they had made to protect the command. Jesus came and said they missed the point. The Sabbath was made for man, not vice versa.

God asks for relationship.



The teacher asked one question of the Greatest Teacher. What is the greatest commandment that God gave us? Jesus gives him two commands that go well beyond obedience. The commands are invitation to relationship with the Eternal Holy God Almighty. And in relationship with Him, God challenges us to join Him in His pursuit of love relationship with others.

I included more of the audio from the worship service just to give you a glimpse of our time on a Sunday morning.  I record the podcast through a microphone I wear, hence the reason you hear me better than those who pray or lead singing.  But we love all these parts of our worship service.
