True Sabbath Rest

True Sabbath Rest
If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. Isaiah 58:13-14

To all who receive the Sabbath as a sign of Christ's creative and redeeming power, it will be a delight. Seeing Christ in it, they delight themselves in Him. The Sabbath points them to the works of creation as an evidence of His mighty power in redemption. While it calls to mind the lost peace of Eden, it tells of peace restored through the Savior. And every object in nature repeats His invitation, "Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).

The Desire of Ages, p. 289

Sabbath Tip
True Sabbath rest isn’t found in an after-Sabbath-dinner nap or in the break from our usual routine. It’s found by coming to Jesus Christ with our whole heart and allowing Him to purge away the world—all of it—for those precious 24 hours and to fill us with His Holy Spirit. This way He can provide the restorative and revitalizing spiritual rest that will comfort and heal our souls and give us lasting peace.
