Read John 7:19-24

“For if the correct time for circumcising your son falls on the Sabbath, you go ahead and do it so as not to break the law of Moses. So why should you be angry with me for healing a man on the Sabbath? Look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly.” – John 7:23-24 (NLT)

The Sabbath (setting aside one day a week to rest and deepen our relationship with God) was created by God to protect us, not to confine us. We can easily be tempted to work every day; remembering the Sabbath protects us from working ourselves to death. It also reminds us that God’s working, not our working, is the ultimate source of all good things in our lives. We don’t have to fear that taking a day to honor and relate to God will lead to our “not having enough”. So honor the spirit of the Sabbath by using a day per week to draw nearer to God, and rest in His love.
