According to the Bible, it took God six days to create the earth and everything in it. On the seventh day of creation He rested from His work of creating. He also blessed the seventh day and set it apart as holy.

At the very beginning of time, there was no religion, there was a written law. Even before sin entered the world and our work became a burden!

The Sabbath was designed by God for rest, and He was even the first one to celebrate it!

“So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation” (Genesis 2:2,3).

However, today, we are living busy lives – We all have long to-do lists—they often feel never-ending!

But supposing your to-do list had an end? Or at least a pause button? What if you could set that list aside and take time to rest and relax?

We all get the same 24 hours in a day, but it’s not uncommon for us to try to pack in 48 hours-worth of tasks into those 24! While a valiant effort to be super-productive, this is an impossible feat. Our time and mental energy are precious commodities, and it matters how we spend them.

God’s gift of the Sabbath allows us the benefit of setting aside a set 24-hour period each week to rest and worship. He’s given us permission to stop our busy work and spend focused time with Him.

God knew exactly before you even existed you would need time to rest. And He wanted you to have the very best!

That’s why God created the Sabbath on the seventh day of creation. God gave us the gift of the Sabbath and designed the day with you in mind.

The Sabbath or Shabbat was designed as a day of rest where you could spend one-on-one time with God each week. Observing the Sabbath allows you to revive your soul and grow closer to God.

On the Sabbath, we remember there is a Creator God who made us and wants to guide us. He wants to provide for all our needs, both physically and spiritually.

“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19.

On the Sabbath we remember what was made for us and why. The Bible tells us our Father in heaven gives good gifts.

“If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!” Matthew 7:11.
