We have lost the spiritual practice of Sabbath in our culture today. If you’re new to it, you’re going to have to learn about what it is first. Here is what Sabbath IS and ISN’T and how we should practice it as followers of Jesus.
In the Matthew 18 story, we are told that a man was forgiven of a huge debt (about $800,000.00 in today’s world). Then, he was unwilling to forgive someone else who owed him what amount to about $200.00. That is sad. One of the greatest tools in Satan’s toolbox that he uses against us to destroy our relationships is unforgiveness.
Do you believe that we are living the last days? Matthew 24 records the words of Jesus as He prophesied what would be happening before His return. Wars and rumors of wars. False prophets. Famines. Earthquakes. Lawlessness. And in the middle of this list, Jesus says that many people will be offended. People say things about you. Stab you in the back. Disagree with your opinions. Perhaps someone you love betrayed you. Perhaps you confided in someone with a deep secret, only to have them betray your confidence. You have important choices to make. Do you pick up the offense or not?
