Pastor Ruth shares with us a story from Mark of Jesus healing on the Sabbath. Jesus was impatient for the man to be healed, he didn’t want him to suffer another night, he gave him a merciful rest. Pastor Ruth reminds us that our rest comes from the word of God and Jesus wants to restore us and renew us so that we can bring others to His merciful rest.
Reading: Mark 2:23-28
Jesus said . . . “The sabbath was made for humankind, and not humankind for the sabbath; so the Son of Man is lord even of the sabbath.”Mark 2:27-28 (NRSV)
