“Some of the Pharisees asked, “Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?”  – (Luke 6:1-5)

SABBATH FOR MAN

The Jewish religious leaders raised the the issue of the Sabbath and seeking to find fault with Jesus’ disciples. (Luke 6:2)

The Lord reminded the religious leaders of the incident of how David ate the show bread from the house of God (Lk 6:3-4).  He told them that He was greater than the temple (Mat 12:6).  At this point the Jewish leaders should have stopped and recognized, who it was, who was with them. They should have fallen prostrate at His feet in worship.   

God desires mercy and not sacrifice (Matt 12:7). God wants us to seek His mercy and pardon always, to come before Him with a broken and contrite spirit.  The sacrifice that God desires is a broken spirit. God will not reject a broken and repentant heart. (Psalm 51:17)

The Lord also declared the disciples as guiltless, in eating the grain on the Sabbath. This God’s ways and not ours.  When we are led by the Spirit of God, we walk in His righteousness (Rom 14:17) .  For Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath. (Matt 12:8).  

The Sabbath is about the rest of God.  Sabbath was made for Man, for his rest (Mk 2:27).  The Lord wants Man to always be in the ‘restedness’ of God.  It was for Man to know that all his needs are met in Him and therefore to be rested in God. (Heb 4:1, 9, 11/ Acts 17:28)

Key Thoughts: We live in a restless world but are we, the Church, display God’s rest for the world to be drawn to the Lord of the Sabbath?

“Sabbath was made for man and not man for sabbath. God wants man to be always in the stated of rest with Him.” 

Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, help us understand that you desire mercy and not sacrifice. Teach us to extend mercy to those around us. It is in your mercy do we find rest. May we be able to convey this message of rest to the world which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
