Jesus’s Sabbath

22 Mar

Jesus’s Sabbath…

Jesus died on Friday just before sunset. Why? Because Friday night was the beginning of the Shabbat, the Sabbath, the Day of Rest. And what was Jesus doing on the cross? He was working.

But when the Sabbath came, all work had to cease. So even in His death, Jesus honored the Word of God. He rested in the tomb. So He had to die when He did, because the Shabbat was coming. He had to finish His work.

It’s not so much that He died because the Shabbat was coming – but rather it was that the Shabbat came because He died. Jesus’s peace is more powerful than time and space and never dependent on circumstance.

Stop waiting for the Sabbath. Stop waiting for the circumstance to change. It doesn’t matter what day it is, it doesn’t matter how many problems you have, or what condition your life is in enter Jesus’s peace now, and the Shabbat will come.

Come sun or storm, hell or high water, it doesn’t matter. Bring it to Calvary and dwell in Jesus’s rest, and He will cause the Sabbath to come. For the Son of Man is Lord of Shabbat.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Enter His peace today, living as if the circumstances surrounding you have already changed – it doesn’t matter what you see or feel, remind yourself you have the victory through His finished work.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
