In America, we violate the Sabbath with technology and caffeine. But God’s way is a better way. God the Father is saying, “Look at your whole life, and see if it is put together in a way that is fruitful and joyful, that you get things done, and one of those things you get done is resting in me and enjoying time with me, the life that I’ve given you, and the people that I’ve surrounded you with.” That’s the heart of the Sabbath.
This clip is excerpted from the sermon “IV. Remember The Sabbath,” the fourth part of our sermon series Ten Commandments: Set Free to Live Free. It was preached by Pastor Mark Driscoll out of Exodus 20:8-11 at Mars Hill Downtown Bellevue and released on October 6, 2013.
