True Sabbath

Yes, you’re still viewing “Better than life”. The design changes are long delayed, so here it is.

Better than life version 5 is “True Sabbath”. As most of you who have been visiting this blog, you know by now that my heritage is Seventh-day Adventism. I grew up giving high regard to Saturday as the holy Sabbath day that should be kept by “commandment believing” Christians.

But as I grew in my knowledge of Christ, and after what I called my “grace awakening”, I learned that “Sabbath” in it’s purest essense is not about keeping a day or two but “resting” — complete surrendering, fully trusting and always falling into the grace of my Savior Jesus Christ.

We can learn from kids. When they rest, they rest. And that means, they don’t worry. Hard feat to follow especially for learned grown ups.

Are you worrying about your salvation? Or about your future? Or even your past? Maybe you’re doing it your way. True Sabbath is resting in the finished work of Jesus Christ. True Sabbath is believing that “…since God did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, … God, who gave us Christ, [will] also give us everything else…” (Rom. 8:32). In the first place, it was Jesus himself who said “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28)

Whenever I worry, whenever I doubt, I always go back to those basic truth. By the way, the resting child header image is my son, Johann who’s now 1 year and 5 months. :D
