The Shift from Rushing to Slowing…

Rest for Your Soul…take a day


Isaiah 30:15

“This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.”


Sabbath was More Than…

  • Taking a nap
  • A day off work
  • Showing up at the Temple
  • 24 hours with no shopping,
  • running, swimming or smiling
  • An occasion for legalism

Sabbath Legalism During Christ’s Ministry

  • Exodus 20:10- “but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work…”
  • Breaking the Sabbath is very serious business! There were big consequences for Sabbath breakers!
  • What is considered work?
  • The religious leaders identified 39 basic categories of “work.”
  • Then, they gave specific instruction for what could and could not be done in each of these 39 categories.
  • For example: reaping, threshing, winnowing, preparing a meal and lifting a burden were all considered work.
  • You can’t lift a burden on the Sabbath.
  • How much is a burden?
  • A burden is anything that weighs more than two dried figs!
  • This is legalism out of control!

The Secret of God’s Sabbath

It is a declaration of complete trust that God is capable of running the universe without their help!

It is a living testimony of their confidence that God can provide (in just six days of labor).

It is an awareness that slowing down to

meet with God and his people is a life priority.

Commit to plan one day a week for the coming month for God and his people.

Take an occasional nap! Psalm 127:1-2


The Shift from Stuffed to Satisfied…

Rest Your Body…God’s Temple


1 Corinthians 6:19

“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.”


Seismic Shift Suggestions

  • From full to satisfied
  • From gulping to tasting
  • From guilty to thankful
  • From random food to planned meals
  • From fast food to sitting down
  • From beverages to water
  • From late night to a bed time
  • From bad to good habits
  • From exercise as work to play

The Shift from Anxiety to Peace…

Rest for Your Mind…Prayer


Philippians 4:6-7

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”


Seismic Shift Suggestions

From my plans to God’s will
