Have you ever been in an environment where you felt that you were the only one that had nothing important to do? Those around you are listing off their appointments and tasks and sounding very accomplished while you are feeling guilty for not having a similar list. This feeling is not uncommon for those of us who live in a country that demands long work days .God works contrarily to this viewpoint. He commands a day of rest for all of us.
God’s command for a day of rest is simple yet important and is something we should not ignore. Yes, there are times in which we should offer our help to lessen the workload of others, but there is also the necessity of reevaluating and prioritizing our work so that we can reestablish a Sabbath even when contrary to our desires.
Our chosen Sabbath day may not necessarily be Sunday. For many believers, church means work and, so it should be to some extent. It takes the work of many to make church a great place. Our rest does not need to be the same day as church nor the same day every week, and it can be difficult to find this day; however, God Himself rested as written in Genesis 3:2. We are made in His image; we should rest; and we can on our Sabbath day.
