Even Better Than Eden: Ch. 6, Sabbath, Quote 3
Not only is our present perspective on work affected, our future anticipation of a permanent rest gives us hope and direction. Like communion and baptism, the Lord’s Day is a reinterpretation of Old Testament law that reminds us of spiritual realities hard to grasp.
“We gather on the Lord’s Day to remember creation and redemption as well as to anticipate the new creation. We are reminded that we are not yet at home with the Father; we’re not yet walking with him in the new garden where we will see him face-to-face. We experience a measure of rest as we are joined to Christ in his death and resurrection, but we know there is a better, fuller, final rest in our future.” p. 105
How does this impact how you view the Lord’s Day?
How will this shape your days, weeks, or years?
