Do you take the sabbath seriously?

Many professing Christians do not. While most will indeed attend an hour-long worship service each week, there are very few who consciously and consistently set aside an entire twenty-four hour period each week for rest, worship, and ministry.

If more Christians took seriously God’s command to remember and keep holy the sabbath day, the stores and restaurants would be empty, the houses of worship and prayer would be filled, the orphans and widows would be visited, and the saints would be refreshed and rewarded.

God calls you to take the sabbath seriously:

“If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy day of the LORD honorable, and shall honor him, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words, then you shall delight yourself in the LORD…” (Isaiah 58:13-14)
