In our culture, we are constantly faced with hurry and restlessness. The pressure to hustle and consume can be overwhelming. But in creation, God modeled a healthy life balance when He worked for six days, and then he set aside a day for rest. Throughout the Bible we see significance placed on sabbath rest as a practice of obedience and a gift from the Father. Sabbath is an entire day set aside to simply rest in God’s presence. It is dedicated time to press pause on work, schedules and obligations that fill up our calendar and enjoy the goodness of our Creator. Often in scripture, we find Jesus carving out time for sabbath rest and we are called to emulate that same balance of rest in our own lives.
