The Lord of the Sabbath
Passage: Mark 2:23–3:6
"When we rest in the biblical sense, we affirm our intentions to pursue a Christ-centered tomorrow. We ponder where we are headed in the coming week, month, or year. We define our intentions and make our dedications. The world and the church need genuinely rested Christians: Christians who are regularly refreshed by true Sabbath rest, not just leisure or time off. When a godly rest is achieved, you will see just how tough and resilient Christians can actually be."
—Gordon MacDonald, Ordering Your Private World, 181, 188.
