We conclude our summer worship series this weekend. The series is called the Good Life and each week we have looked at a different aspect of what it looks like to live the good life, the abundant life that Jesus spoke of in John 10:10.
This week we finish the series by looking at the topic of REST. It is important that we look at this topic on Labor Day weekend, since this weekend was created to honor the laborers that build our society and offer them rest.
The main texts are Genesis 2:1-3; Exodus 20:8-11 (I’m also looking at Deuteronomy 5:12-15); Mark 2:23-28.
Here are my visual meditations on the topic. The first is an overview of where I might take the sermon (you never know, it’s still early in the week). The second is a zoom in on the second point of EQUALITY. Notice how the context for the Sabbath Law changes from the first generation in Exodus to the second generation in Deuteronomy.
