The Kingdom Come

The Sabbath is a time to realize the coming of God’s kingdom.  Part of the reason much of Christian tradition has played down Sabbath practice is not because the Sabbath is unimportant, but because the Sabbath reality of restoration and reconciliation is to be expanded to all time.  A practice of the Sabbath is then a practice of what should be our reality Monday, Tuesday, and so on.

Today spend part of your Sabbath blessing other and the creation.  In doing this we bring the world into communion with God.  This could be a simple act of picking up trash or visiting a shut-in from our church.  Whatever it is, do something to bless the world.  In doing so you will bring the world into Sabbath time.
