References: Luke 6The word Sabbath simply means rest or cessation from work. Did you ever wonder why God took six days to create everything? Clearly He did not need to take six days — God is able to create instantaneously — but He decided that He would take six days. And why did He rest on the seventh day? He certainly did not need to rest — for it is impossible for Him to be fatigued — but He did rest from His work of creation. In doing these things He established a pattern, a cycle of life: six days of work and one day of rest. Many of us give very little thought to how we use the Lord's Day. In fact any attempt at maintaining the sanctity of the Sabbath is often seen as nothing more than a present day form of Phariseeism. After all Jesus did say the Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath? When He made this declaration was He setting aside all the old laws? In these studies Alistair Begg helps us examine the contemporary Christian Sabbath and asks, "Is it possible that theology has been replaced with expediency in regards to this issue? How should today's Christian comply with the fourth commandment?"
I’M TOO BUSY!” We’ve all heard it. We’ve all said it. All too often, busyness gets the best of us.
Just one look at our jam-packed schedules tells us how hard it can be to strike a well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing it all.
That’s why author and pastor Kevin DeYoung addresses the busyness problem head on in his newest book, Crazy Busy - and not with the typical arsenal of time management tips, but rather with the biblical tools we need to get to the source of the issue and pull the problem out by the roots. Highly and super short, Crazy Busy helps put an end to “busyness as usual.”
