Looking at my diary I see that the next 3 month is going to be a little more manic than usual at work due to an intense project that needs delivering.
Often we can fall into the trap of heading off into Sunday to work to make up the time and although I have done this in the past I have some time ago made a concious decision not to do this any longer.
Gen ch 2 v 3 says: And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
God doesn’t get tired so why would he rest? Good question eh? Well the original word “rest” is correctly translated “cease”. So God was giving us the example of what to do on the 7th day – stop work!
God has made this 7th day special and has “sanctified” it for Himself. Its not my day but His.
So it is a tough call as work is so demanding but I for one am praying for dedication to the commitment not to work on Sundays.
