All of us understand the stresses and strains of this life. Keeping God’s Sabbath is a missing element in successful living.
What do you do? Do you follow Jesus, the Lord of the Sabbath?
This is exactly what some people have done when faced with the clear teaching of Scripture. It’s what followers of Christ will be doing when He returns.
In her book The Sabbath World: Glimpses of a Different Order of Time, author Judith Shulevitz makes an interesting observation: “Whenever people begin reading the Book [the Bible], they start keeping the Sabbath. And when they keep the Sabbath they read the Book” (2010, p. 2).
That’s exactly what happened to a group of believers in Transylvania in the1500-1600s. Faced with what the Bible itself says about the Sabbath day, they realized they had no choice but to obey God by keeping the Sabbath as He commanded.
