Blessings of the Sabbath

Posted on November 28, 2017
Blessings of the Sabbath
Each day of life is a blessing, but God gave us the Sabbath as a special weekly blessing to enjoy. The Sabbath gives us time to rest from our daily work and to recharge from the other regular routines of life. This special day of rest gives us time to fellowship with family and friends without feeling the burden of work undone. It gives us a reason to turn off and unplug from the busyness and demands that we face—especially with our constant access to technology. It allows us to focus on what is important and eternal.

The Sabbath was blessed in the beginning—the seventh-day of Creation week—and that blessing extends to us each week when we make it the foundation of our worship. The Bible promises, “Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it; who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and keeps his hand from doing any evil” (Isaiah 56:2). As we keep God’s holy day sacred, we are able to receive His special blessings.

Making the choice to honor God and give Him our worship on His holy day demonstrates our loyalty to Him as the Creator. It allows Him to bless us as we commit our ideas and plans into His Hands and watch for His providences. “A faithful man will abound with blessings” (Proverbs 28:20). As you take time to honor God, watch for His special blessings in your life!

Keeping the Sabbath points us to our eternal rest, as we will celebrate the Sabbath in heaven. The prophecy says, “‘As the new heavens and the new earth which I will make shall remain before Me,’ says the LORD, ‘So shall your descendants and your name remain. And it shall come to pass that from one New Moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall come to worship before Me’” (Isaiah 66:22, 23). We will be able to enjoy the blessings of the Sabbath throughout eternity!
