Week 2: Rhythm for Creation
Join us this Sunday for Week 2 of our teaching series on rest. Can't make it in person? Join us on our Facebook Livestream.
Karoshi = death by overwork
Workaholism is the one commandment we brag about breaking!
"Busy has become a moniker for important. It's code for I matter! Busyness isn't just a disorganized schedule...it is a disordered heart."
Busyness and sin have an almost identical impact on our lives.
And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation.
God built a rhythm into the fabric of creation.
Our world pretends accomplishment is better than rest.
God blessed a day of rest and made it holy!
The Sabbath isn't a day off, but a day of worship.
Is this restful? Is this worship?
The Sabbath is a command and a gift!
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy."
