Don’t Just Do Something, Sit There! (June 3rd, 2018)

Jesus jumps into controversy over what it means to keep the Sabbath holy in today’s lesson from Mark 2:23-3:6. Pastor Paige asks listeners to take their own Sabbath temperature. She explains how the commandment to observe Sabbath rest is a gift from God. Jesus’ teaching about keeping the Sabbath holy prepares us to be intentional about our rhythms of Sabbath rest and time with God. When we observe the Sabbath, God’s love overflows from our hearts, to our words and actions, to the lives of those around us.
