8.7.15–>”What I’ve Learned in 12 Years of Ministry” (pt.3)


The importance of a day of rest every week.

One day of nothing. No ministering.

God instituted this long ago. He made us with this need. We have a God-bestowed need for rest.

Rest is good.

In our scheduled rest, we acknowledge our limited humanity and God’s limitless divinity. We can’t do it all, be always on, nor are we called to be. Without rest, our perspective warps, believing we are responsible for more than we are even capable. In Sabbath, we are reminded of our role as part of the body. No one was made to do it all. Without Sabbath rest, our role gets easily blown out of proportion.

We sow. God reaps.

  1. I couldn’t agree more Rob, I’ve realized this in myself as well. As much as I want to be able to be on all of the time, because there’s so many amazing things to see, do and learn about in this life, I’ve realized that it’s in my nature to need this and can’t be changed. To fight against it is pure futility.
