Forgiveness and Sabbath

Forgiveness and Sabbath…

Jesus died on the sixth day on purpose because it was the eve of the Sabbath. He died on the very eve of the Sabbath because He was bringing in the Sabbath. He was ushering in the Sabbath peace of God.

On the cross, He shows us how to enter the Sabbath. The secret and the key of entering the Sabbath peace for your life is in Luke 23:34, which says, “Father forgive them, they know not what they do.”

He’s dying, He’s in pain, He’s bleeding to death, they’re killing Him wrongfully, they hate Him; yet amazingly He’s thinking of them. He’s asking forgiveness for them. He’s entering the Shabbat, the Sabbath, and teaching us how.

How do you enter the Sabbath? How do you have peace in your life? Forgive. The heart will never have peace if it holds on to self-pity, anger, and complaint. He’s forgiving those who crucified Him.

If He can do that, how much more can you? Forgive those that wronged you. Pray for their blessing. Take some action of forgiveness. Sabbath is about refreshing, restoring, and healing. Enter the Sabbath. Forgive them, and you’ll enter.

And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins. Mark 11:25

Who from your past do you still need to forgive? Don’t hold off any longer — forgive them, pray for them, and, if you can, bless them today.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
