Darryl Dash is pastor of Richview Baptist Church and host of dashhouse.com. Rev. Dash posted a great article on the importance and freedom of the Sabbath. What can sometimes be a “bonus workday” or “the day where we sit and pray” can really be a special time set apart for your own rest, thoughts and liberation from the stress of the week. In fact, God enjoys you enjoying your rest!
In America, rest is all too often thought as something only for the weak or lazy. Well, God is not American. Take a breather. Take a nap. Take a day to rest and rejoice in the day that the Lord has made.
