Sit in the Silence - August 7, 2023

Could you use a reminder on how to slow your life down? One of the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20, verse 8 says, “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath day to the Lord your God.”

What did Jesus do on that last Sabbath of his life? Look in the Gospel of Matthew. Find anything? Try Mark. Nothing there? What about Luke? No? Surely John mentions the Sabbath. He doesn’t? Well it looks like Jesus was quiet that day.

“You mean with one week left to live, Jesus observed the Sabbath? You’re telling me that Jesus thought worship was more important than work?” That’s exactly what I’m telling you. If Jesus found time in the midst of a racing agenda to stop the rush and sit in the silence, do you think we could too?
