Following Jesus carries costs associated with reputation and relationships, but the Holy Spirit is ready to transform and empower us when we’re willing to live and speak the gospel.
Sabbath is a vehicle of God’s generosity to his people for the sake of rest. Through it he redeems us from our slavery to work and self-sufficiency.
While we were enslaved, when we identify with Jesus, we are adopted by God and made his heirs. Instead of being slaves to our sinful natures, we are made servant kings with all rights and privileges and the ability to live meaningful lives.
