Sabbath Rest: What Does It Look Like?

Post by

I've heard some people say that Sabbath rest is for worshiping God, and they say that by worship they mean constantly praying or attending as many church services as possible on that day. That doesn't sound like rest but activity.

Resting properly leads us to not focus so intently on small details so that we then are able to focus more on the large picture and purpose that includes God. There should be times when we rely on God enough to feel like we don't have to work and do activities all the time to get to where we need to go or earn God's favor.

Rest can involve church activities. And Christians should aim to try to attend a service on Sundays if possible, but they shouldn't feel obligated to be at church multiple times that day.
