Embracing Sabbath: The Key to True Spiritual Rest

Are you trying to volunteer for every ministry or charity, either within your airline or your church, when you are not on duty? It may seem “spiritual” to do so but it often isn’t.

Perhaps, in these frenetic days, the children of God need to rest a bit more than they need to work. Secular culture lures us to multi-task ourselves to death. We put a religious face on it and call it a form of godliness, a proof of our zeal. Did Jesus ever rest? Yes, He did. So where, then, is the Sabbath rest for His people today, the Sabbath made for man rather than the other way around? Maybe it is time for us to try being silent and still more than busy. We can invite the Lord to visit us in that quiet. Then we might hear Him. Then we might receive what we long for, His blessed presence and the knowledge of His love.

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” -Matthew 11:29-30 (NIV)
