“When He had come back to Capernaum several days afterward, it was heard that He was at home. And many were gathered together, so that there was no longer room, not even near the door; and He was speaking the word to them. And they came, bringing to Him a paralytic, carried by four men. Being unable to get to Him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Him; and when they had dug an opening, they let down the pallet on which the paralytic was lying. And Yeshua seeing their faith said to the paralytic, ‘Son, your sins are forgiven.' But some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, ‘Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins but God alone?' Immediately Yeshua, aware in His spirit that they were reasoning that way within themselves, said to them, ‘Why are you reasoning about these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, “Your sins are forgiven”; or to say, “Get up, and pick up your pallet and walk”? But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins'—He said to the paralytic, ‘I say to you, get up, pick up your pallet and go home.' And he got up and immediately picked up the pallet and went out in the sight of everyone, so that they were all amazed and were glorifying God, saying, ‘We have never seen anything like this'” (Mark 2:1-12, NASU). “Getting into a boat, Yeshua crossed over the sea and came to His own city. And they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. Seeing their faith, Yeshua said to the paralytic, ‘Take courage, son; your sins are forgiven.' And some of the scribes said to themselves, ‘This fellow blasphemes.' And Yeshua knowing their thoughts said, ‘Why are you thinking evil in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, “Your sins are forgiven,” or to say, “Get up, and walk”? But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins'—then He said to the paralytic, ‘Get up, pick up your bed and go home.' And he got up and went home. But when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck, and glorified God, who had given such authority to men” (Matthew 9:1-8, NASU). “One day He was teaching; and there were some Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting there, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was present for Him to perform healing. And some men were carrying on a bed a man who was paralyzed; and they were trying to bring him in and to set him down in front of Him. But not finding any way to bring him in because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down through the tiles with his stretcher, into the middle of the crowd, in front of Yeshua. Seeing their faith, He said, ‘Friend, your sins are forgiven you.' The scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, ‘Who is this man who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?' But Yeshua, aware of their reasonings, answered and said to them, ‘Why are you reasoning in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, “Your sins have been forgiven you,” or to say, “Get up and walk”? But, so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,'—He said to the paralytic—‘I say to you, get up, and pick up your stretcher and go home.' Immediately he got up before them, and picked up what he had been lying on, and went home glorifying God. They were all struck with astonishment and began glorifying God; and they were filled with fear, saying, ‘We have seen remarkable things today'” (Luke 5:17-26, NASU).

The entire Christian life is meant to be a constant flow of Gods grace and love both to us and through us. So when it comes to the practice of Sabbath, its no surprise that this is exactly what God has always intended it to be. Reflecting his heart of mercy and love, the Sabbath is not only a day that exists for our good, but also for doing good.

Morgan preached this week as we continued diving into the commandment of Sabbath. Morgan made clear their agenda is to push us to be more like Jesus and Sabbath is a key piece of this. Morgan started with a story of a family that won the lottery. They imaged all their dreams coming true and no more pain and suffering due to this massive amount of money they won. In reality, this windfall of money led to fighting, greed, confusion and ultimately divorce. The statistics show that the majority of lottery winners that take the full sum, have spent all the money within 5 years. Why? People do not know how to steward that great of a gift. Similarly to this, we have been given a great gift in the Sabbath, but we may not know how to steward that gift. Is the world telling us that rest and not pushing harder at work is wrong and lazy? Does life just get in the way and we really don't think we can take 24 hours? Do we fight, argue, disagree, make Sabbath legalistic and turn this gift into a burden? The conference they returned from last week was all on well-being. We are not well. Our families, churches, communities and friends are not well. We are more distracted, tired, anxious than any other generation. Just take a look at the political environment. We can't even be kind to someone who disagrees with us. Mark 2: 23-28. Once again, Jesus is having conflict with the Pharisees. They have asked "Who is this man that forgives sinners?" "Why does he eat with people like tax collectors?" "Why do his disciples not follow the law as they should?" "Why are they doing unlawful things on the Sabbath?" There were so many rules/laws, that the Pharisees begin to miss the mark. Jesus is the embodiment of the law. Jesus is God, the Messiah, the King. The Sabbath was made for man, not the man for the Sabbath. Digging into Sabbath a little deeper....free people are not enslaved to their work. Sabbath is a day to be happy, to delight in God and His creation. Sabbath is a day to not only not do work, but not think about work. Is it hard to delight in God? Is your view of God Joyful and delightful? We have a hard time celebrating one another and finding delight in one another. It's no wonder we struggle with finding delight in time with Jesus. While thinking and praying about Sabbath, ask yourself these questions.... What brings you Joy? What gives you life? The final point was that not only do we need to rest from the external, but we also need to rest from trying to prove ourselves. We need to rest from trying to be accepted and trying to be "good enough." We need to rest in the gospel of Jesus Christ as he is the source of true rest. We closed by hearing from Keas and Sarah Keasler about what Sabbath looks like to them and how it has evolved through different stages of their lives. I encourage you to listen to the full podcast from the service so you can hear everything they shared. Here are a few takeaways that I noted: If you are a type A, driver personality, you may have a "to do" list 6 days a week. On Sabbath, you need a "not to do" list. Preparation is key. Shop, cook, plan in advance. Light a candle and share a prayer to start and end Sabbath. (The prayer they use is listed below) Sabbathing is like REM sleep is to a healthy sleep life. You can nap every day for an hour and never get to REM sleep. Think about doing something you can't do the rest of the week. What brings you back in focus with God? Nothingness can be very hard for some people. The 2 spiritual practices that cause you to really TRUST God are Tithing and Sabbath. Keas stated many have always thought there were 9 commandments and then 1 strong suggestion. (To Sabbath) :) https://redeemerwichita.church/

Jesus Has Authority On Earth As Both Son Of Man And Son Of God Mark 2:9 - 11 9Which is easier: to say to this paralyzed man, ‘Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk'? 10But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the man, 11“I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.”
