- What does God have for me in this day, through this day of rest?
- What do I have for Him in this day, through this day of rest?
- How will this be lived out with others in gratitude, joy and celebration?
A non-legalistic, joy-infused Sabbath Keeping is a portal into some of the best things God has for us in this New Year. Isaiah points the way.
This is what the LORD says, “… foreigners (gentiles…hey that’s us!) who bind themselves to the Lord to serve him, to love the name of the LORD, and to worship him, all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it and who hold fast to my covenant—these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer.” Isaiah 56:6-7a
Joy is an early casualty of our fast-paced, nonstop world, but these questions can turn the tide.
