The Grace Behind the Weekly Sabbath

COVENANT OF GRACE (II)

Why is it necessary to crystallize salvation or grace into a weekly observance? Isn’t a weekly rest superfluous, since in Jesus we have already received the promised rest?

The rest in Jesus is the inward, unbroken serenity amidst life’s tempest. Though the invitation is to all “who labor and are heavy laden,” Jesus says to “Take My yoke upon you,” a reminder of the continuance of earthly toil; with His easy yoke, you will find rest “‘for your souls.’”(Mt 11:28-30)

Nevertheless, the grace of God extends to our fragile frame burdened by the reality of labor, sickness, and pain, so He ordains one day each week during which we put aside our physical work for worship and reflection.

Just like the physical emblems of the Lord’s table, the weekly Sabbath stems from the love of He who understands our need for an outward physical experience of His inward spiritual grace.

Not until we shed our fleshly robe will we fully receive the promised rest (Rev 14:13); therefore, while “a promise remains of entering His rest” (Heb 4:1), the weekly Sabbath remains an anticipation and foretaste of that blessed state (Heb 4:9, 11).
