Join us as we continue our RE series. Pastor Neli references the book “The Art of Rest (Adam Mabry) when he talks about resistance. One of the reasons we need to resist is because we are so tempted by and caught up in the activities of life that it takes us away from our time of rest with God. We are asked to resist autonomy, idolatry and anxiety. Instead we are to embrace levity and leisure, find a hobby, regularly worship the Lord, and make room to rest with Jesus.
On a Sabbath, while he was going through the grainfields, his disciples plucked and ate some heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands. But some of the Pharisees said, “Why are you doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath?” And Jesus answered them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him: how he entered the house of God and took and ate the bread of the Presence, which is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those with him?” And he said to them, “The Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.”
– Luke 6:1-5 (ESV)
