Sabbath Peace

Sabbath Peace
Amid all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we often long to carve out time for peace, quiet, and reflection. Jesus understood our need for rest when He extended this invitation to all those who seek Him: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28–30).

Sabbath, established at the Creation and renewed through the example of Christ, gives us that peace our hearts desire every week. Through His famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus assures us, “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. … For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. (Matthew 5:17, 18). His law stands the test of time and provides us with the peace and protection we still need today.

As our world rushes into a tailspin of moral decay, Jesus’ words offer an anchor of safety and consistency. At the close of His ministry, Jesus identified those who follow Him as “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him” (John 14:21).

As members of God’s family, Jesus promises to give us the power to obey His law, and in obeying, we find peace. Jesus promised, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).
