I Love Sabbath: Embracing Truth
by Kelly Vonner
“Only fear the LORD, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you”.
1 Samuel 12:24
After years of hearing my former pastor tell us that we have to know God for ourselves and that we could not make into the Kingdom of God on the coat-tail of our parents and grandparents, my husband and I made a huge leap. We embraced truth. When we realized the Sabbath was from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown, we embraced the plan of God.
We were promised rest, and we wanted it. We were promised time in the word and worship, and we yearned for it. We wanted the yoke and burden of the Lord so we came to the source.
Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and My burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30).
Our lives have been on an upward spiral ever since we embraced the truth of God. Embracing His truth has brought a new level of consistency into our lives. We are more productive during the workweek, and we are healthier because we embrace his rest. Embracing the Sabbath is what ushers in the peace that surpasses all understanding every week. Obedience is good for your body and soul; embrace truth.
