The Shabbat Secrets

5 Jan

The Shabbat Secrets…

Those of you who live near or work with Orthodox Jews are aware of something that happens every week. Every week on Friday, a few hours before sunset, Orthodox Jews begin rushing around, going home early, preparing, doing last minute shopping, doing all their last preparations, then rushing to their homes before sundown.

The Sabbath doesn’t just come as do other days of the week. It is written in the fourth chapter of Hebrews that God’s people must also enter the Shabbat and we must labor to enter it.

For us in Jesus, the peace of the Shabbat is every day. But it doesn’t just come to us. We must enter it. You can have peace and joy and blessings every day of your week. But don’t expect it to just show up one day at your door.

Choose to enter into the presence of God every day of your life. Spend time entering. Practice entering. Get good at entering. And you can dwell in the Shabbat every day of your life. In other words, every day of your life can be like a weekend. Let it start today. Shabbat Shalom.

And foreigners who bind themselves to the Lord to minister to him, to love the name of the Lord, and to be his servants, all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it and who hold fast to my covenant these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations. The Sovereign  Lord declares— he who gathers the exiles of Israel: “I will gather still others to them besides those already gathered.” Isaiah 56:6-8

Learn the secret of entering into Jesus’s Sabbath, the Lord’s deep peace and shalom – set time aside for Him and seek His peace and joy.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
