“Remember the Sabbath and Keep it Holy,” ~God

There was a time not so long ago that there was a thing called, “The Blue Law”.  Today’s younger generation probably doesn’t have any idea what the blue law was.  Do you know?  Oddly enough, it was a law that required businesses to close on Sunday.  There was a general opinion that Sunday was meant to be a day of rest.  Wonder where anyone ever got that idea?
.
I’ve begun thinking about how I might incorporate God’s instruction of rest on the Sabbath in my life.  I have not figured it all out, but I know one thing for sure.  Sunday is meant as a day of replenishment.  It is a time to reflect on the things of God and make adjustments to my life that better incorporate and acknowledge the blessings of God.
.
I don’t think the Sabbath is necessarily on our day known as Sunday.  The Hebrew calendar and ours don’t perfectly align, but I do believe everyone has a Sabbath.  It is that seventh day of your week, when you don’t work and refocus on who it is that provided for you on the previous six days.  I suppose if you work on modern day Sunday, that is ok but probably you run a risk of neglecting your Holy Day just because you are not in sync with the rest of the world.  Make sense?
.
So take note of your Sabbath and make sure you keep it Holy.  God really values His seventh day and I believe He is honored by observing you observe the day He gave you in a manner that is pleasing.  The Sabbath is meant to be a Holy Day not a holiday.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
