The Grace Behind the Weekly Sabbath

Enjoy the Sacred Rest

Observing the sacred rest might appear to be restrictive and burdensome. Herein lies a great irony—rest becomes a burden. While those living below the poverty line or residing in oppressive societies yearn for elusive rest, many in affluent countries voluntarily enslave themselves to their work.

The majority of us do not really need more than six days to make a decent living or to keep our houses habitable. Even personal errands like banking and marketing can be easily handled with modern conveniences like the internet and supermarkets or through efficient use of our lunchtimes during weekdays.

Of course, we commit no sacrilege if we have tried our best but cannot avoid borrowing Sabbath hours to do some of these things—we are under grace, not law—but all too often, we abuse this liberty. We rob ourselves of a twenty-four-hour Sabbath, either because we overtax ourselves by aspiring too much, by desiring too much, or simply because we want to do things our way.

So it boils down to attitude—whether we love God enough to do things His way, and whether we enjoy spending time with Him alone, like how we dedicate special moments for the ones we love. If so, we will find God’s commandments not at all burdensome (1 Jn 5:3), and we ultimately stand to gain.

“If you…call the Sabbath a delight,
The holy day of the LORD honorable,
And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways…
Then you shall delight yourself in the LORD;
And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth,
And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father.
The mouth of the LORD has spoken.” (Isa 58:13,14)
