Episode 055 – The Sabbath Pt 7: Getting Super Practical
Key Passage(s): Genesis 2:1-3; Deuteronomy 5:12-15
So what does it look to observe the Sabbath in our world today? This a question my family and I have been joyfully wrestling with for about fourteen years now. And in this episode, I walk you through what we’ve learned and what the Sabbath looks like for us. The purpose isn’t to imply that we’ve got it all figured out, but to provide you with practical ideas and suggestions on how to make the Sabbath a central feature in your life. Furthermore, I briefly tackle two passages we haven’t tackled yet, and they’re passages that I believe will utterly fascinate you.
- What was your biggest takeaway from the teaching?
- When was the last time you woke up with nothing on the agenda for the day and you were able to ask, “How much fun can we possibly have today?”
- Knowing that observing a Sabbath isn’t so much about which day but a day, what day of the week could you take a Sabbath if you don’t do so already?
- What constitutes “work” for you?
- The Sabbath was intended to look and feel totally different than the other six days of the week. So what are the things you need to cease from (“work,” etc.), and what are the things you need to do in order to make this a reality?
- What gets you the most excited about celebrating Sabbath in your life? What has you the most concerned?
- Are there any ways in which you’re still stuck in Egypt? How do you need to be set free?
- How can you begin walking out one of these practical ideas this week?
