Exodus 20:8-11

8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work,10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lordblessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Often we focus so much on the “what” of this commandment that we miss the “why”.

October 26th News- The Fourth Commandment

Series: The Heart of the Ten Commandments

This week we will look at the third commandment found in Exodus 20:8-11…

“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

There are a lot of questions that come to mind when we read this commandment. What can we do on the sabbath and what is forbidden? What does it mean to “keep it holy”? Why is it so important to God?

Each of these 10 commandments challenge each of us on many different levels. I believe this one is marginalized and abused by all of us- I know that God has been convicting me about how I approach this command.

But I believe that we will see, once again, that there is incredible beauty and love and grace in these words. And I believe that God has some things to say to you that will bless you this week!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

First of all, I want to thank those who helped serve at the PIN Ministry grace2flogo-300x150breakfast last Saturday. I love that ministry and how we can serve those in need in such a tangible way… It’s also a lot of fun to cook and work together. If you have never served at a PIN breakfast or Sunday dinner, I would encourage you to give it a try. The dates we are signed up for are listed below. Check them out and maybe schedule your time so you can attend one of there events. Even if you don’t do it again, you will appreciate experiencing the ministry first hand and seeing how it is impacting VA Beach.

This Sunday, we will continue our study of the Gospel of Mark by looking at two stories that focus on the same topic: the Sabbath. To prepare, you can read Mark 2:23-28 and Mark 3:1-6.

You will discover that we see Jesus interacting with the religious leaders again– as they continue to try to figure out who he is and what he is doing. What they find out is that Jesus is different than anyone they had ever encountered– and they are challenged by his words.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
