Luke 14:1-6

I’m going to continue on with the topic of the Sabbath Tim was talking about the Sabbath on Sunday and I’m gonna just continue right on in Luke chapter 14 so I said in chapter 14 verses 1 through 6 it happened that way he went into the house of one of the leaders of the Pharisees on the Sabbath to eat bread they were watching him closely and they were there in front of him and there in front of him was a man suffering from dropsy dropsy is a condition where your body fills up with fluid and it becomes really hard to move a great painful move jesus answered and spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees saying is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath or not but they kept said and then he took hold of him and He healed them and he sent him away and he said to them which one of you will have a son or an ox fall into a well and will not immediately pull him out on the Sabbath day and they couldn’t make no reply to this now we have quite a few takeaways here and I’m just going to first share something that I found really interesting in this section and it’s a continuation of what Tim has said and previously in Luke and one of the thing is that Jesus is repeatedly defending his healings on the Sabbath or the Sabbath fields we can see that in chapter 6 verses 9 and 10 we can see that again in 13 verses 14 and 17 we see a cure and then we see it again in 6 verse 9 I mean questions the Pharisees about the legality of healing the savage killing on the Sabbath beforehand and then he heals the people and still they could give no good reason as to why they believe that healing was a violation of Sabbath law yeah Jesus his kingdom mine he knows who guys another thing to take note of is that he’s Lord of the Sabbath okay he created the world in six days he rested now one of the takeaways that I personally tried to apply my life is that having a Sabbath for a long time in my life there was no seven I mean I went to church on Sunday but I still did things recently in the past couple months my wife was suggesting that you know we need to have a time of rest so that we can heal ourselves that we can have the energy to do what we do on a regular basis and so we’ve been we’ve set aside Sunday we still go to church and we still do any basic things that we need to do but we stay away from business and work and that kind of thing on Sunday to give us that time that I believe that God wants us to have to rest and to heal now we’re not going to heal up like I call Jesus did he touch those people and they healed instantly but I do believe that having that rest gives us healing of the mind and healing of the body over time another thing to take away from this section is that Jesus Christ loves us like we are his children because we are stood where is Bregman and I believe that each each oozes the specifically the Sabbath to few people because that’s his day that’s his date of birth that’s that’s he wants to see us better to grow up to to succeed in that way so what I’m gonna ask you guys is what is something that you can do to find that rest in your life do you have a Sabbath didn’t have you set up a Sabbath moment in your life what can you do today or this week that can give you that moment that break from all that’s going on in the world right now we’ll just leave so much things and focus on God and nothing else okay find that spot in your life today this week make make that place Lord God I just thank you for this opportunity to be together to talk and to study and to listen to you where I pray that you would just inspire each one of us to do something in Airlines to move forward at your will and give us that strength and the knowledge of that so that we can move forward but I think before all you do in our lives and I pray in your precious name
