Someone once said, “You need to come apart before you come apart.” In our quest to experience the heart of Jesus in 40 days , Keri Wyatt Kent brings us to see the value of Sabbath. This chapter reminds the reader that “We choose to open the gift of unconditional love by setting aside our tasks, resting in his presence.”
Our culture has convinced us that happiness is found in business and activity. But it simply isn’t so. God has set forth the basic need to cease from activity and worshipfully rest in Him. It is this truth that helps us experience the heart of Jesus.
Kent is quite correct that “Sabbath is not a just a day, but a lifestyle.” Begin today to cease from some activity and engage Christ. Joy is found in Him.
