This week’s lesson – Sabbath: A Day of Freedom

“And He said to them, ‘The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath’ ” (Mark 2:27, NKJV).

As we stop to take relief from our busy lives and to worship on the Sabbath, we are reminded that the Sabbath commemorates Creation and affirms God as Creator of the earth.

In Mark 2:27, Jesus says, “The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath.” Christ reminds us that the Sabbath isn’t just a weekly ritual filled with liturgy or one more thing we have to do at the end of the week. Rather, He has given us the freedom to understand and celebrate the Sabbath in its multifaceted biblical depth and beauty. From this week’s lesson – Friday.

Read about it, think about it, and we’ll discuss it Sabbath morning.  Hope to see you then.
