Day 319 - Did Jesus Impact Thoughts Regarding the Sabbath?

Finding Your Creative Bones® 365-Day Devotional © 2023

Did Jesus impact thoughts regarding the Sabbath? Is there more than rest that is appropriate for Sundays?

Now it came about that on the Sabbath he was going through the fields of grain, and his disciples took the heads of the grain for food, crushing them in their hands.
But some of the Pharisees said, Why do you do what it is not right to do on the Sabbath?
And Jesus said, Have you not seen in the Writings what David did when he was in need of food, he, and those who were with him;
How he went into the house of God and took for food the holy bread, which only the priests may take, and gave it to those who were with him?
And he said, The Son of man is lord even of the Sabbath. (Luke 6.1.5 Bible in Basic English (BBE))

The Old Testament guides us to reserve and rest on the seventh day of the week. To give the day as God did to recover from the week and seek time with God. Do you honor the Sabbath? Did Jesus impact thoughts regarding the Sabbath and what is appropriate on Sundays? In Luke, Jesus performed good works on the Sabbath that still seemed to honor the Lord's day. It would seem to make sense. Good works fall into what God hopes we will do every day. Do you believe God still considers the use of Sundays necessary?

Would it be possible for you to try reserving the Sabbath for a month? Would your life change, or would your experience with the Father improve? Could you use it to impact someone around you or your community positively?


Lord, forgive me for not honoring the Sabbath as you asked us to. My actions were not deliberate against you, but I now understand that my lack of intention to keep the Sabbath equates to ignoring your commandments, and I apologize. Jesus taught us to serve you on the seventh day, which is acceptable. Enable me to rest and offer service to others on your day. To focus on my faith and service to you seems to be a good plan for our day. Please guide me in how I should spend my Sundays. Holy Spirit, speak to me and let me know if I stray from what God believes acceptable. Forgive me for my past transgressions on your day. You are my Lord, and I love you. Lead, and I will follow. I pray in Jesus Christ's name. Amen
