Sunday, July 11: Kingdom Ethics
This week in our Kingdom Ethics series we will be learning about Shabbat otherwise known as Sabbath.
Through this series, we have been learning about the principles that govern the decisions we make as Christ-followers and Jeremiah kicked it off by stating, “We are going to have to fight to live out a kingdom ethic today.”
Is Sabbath something worth fighting for and implementing into our rhythms of life?
Jesus once stated to the Pharisees, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath (Mark 2:27-28).”
Western culture moves at a pace so fast, the idea of Sabbath sounds silly. Stopping or resting once a day during the week is often seen as irresponsible and lazy. Society says to fill up your time with more and more and more and you will be successful through your strength… But God commands His people to stop, meet Him on a holy day, and go forward through the week with His strength instead of our own.
Jesus says, “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest…” Are we making space in our week for Christ? Are we too busy with life to stop and celebrate all He has given us? What would it look like to do so?
Come this Sunday at 9:30 am and 11:00 am to learn more.
Service times are at 9:30 & 11:00. If you can’t make it in person, you can watch live at those times. We no longer have an 8:00 online service.
