Sabbath, Silence & Solitude / by David Flowers

Sermon Title: Sabbath, Silence & Solitude
Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 5:12-15; Mark 2:23-28; Luke 10:38-42; Matthew 11:28-30

Why are we often so crazy busy? It's not just the miles per hour that makes our lives hurried, it's our anxious and driven hearts. Have you ever experienced that? We all have at some point.

We can be still but find that our soul is not. What is worse is that when we live in the fast and furious mode of existence, we can't hear from God and be recharged by his life-giving voice. We weren't meant to live this way.

In the following message, we see that God gave us "Sabbath-rest" as a blessing that we can enter into it on a regular basis (Heb 4:9-11). Jesus modeled this for us. He practiced it in a way that honored God and restored his soul. Christ left us an example to follow. We want to look at that together and learn from him. 

What is Sabbath? Why is silence and solitude important for us as human beings? And what does it look like for seasons of work to flow out of Sabbath-rest?
