Sabbath by Dan B. Allender

Delight.

Not the first word that comes to my mind when I think about Sabbath, a once-weekly remembrance of God’s resting on the seventh day of creation.

But in this book, Dan Allender paints a beautiful picture of the implications of experiencing Sabbath as God intended.

If you feel overworked, pressed for time, fearful, or just plain bored, then this book is for you.

Some books offer quick fixes.

This book demands a lifelong commitment to Sabbath as the fourth commandment, one intended for today as it was thousands of years ago.

Even if observing Sabbath really is optional in today’s world, I no longer want to skip it or avoid it.

I want to delight in God’s creation and rest in his arms.

Obedience = Love

February 26, 2011 Leave a comment

John writes in his second letter, “And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love” (1:6).

The harder part in today’s world is figuring out what love means, more so than obedience.

Obedience is stressed in our culture.

Love is far more neglected.
