Reviews - What do customers think about Sabbath Challenge, Sabbath Delight?
Thank God for the Sabbath Dec 10, 2006
Until I read this book I hadn't even heard of the importance of Sabbath observance. I knew it was one of the ten commandments but I didn't think it applied to Christians today. I used to be a Sunday observer and then my life changed when I became a Sabbath observer. This book showed me not only that it was biblically correct to follow the Sabbath today, but that I could experience "life in abundance" as promised by Jesus (I still hadn't achieved that state until I became a Sabbath observer).
I used to be a work-aholic, working until late on Friday and all day Saturday. I had no reason to stop working. But this book told me that I could experience a delight that I never knew was possible until I observed the Sabbath.
My hole outlook on life has changed. My time with my family during the Sabbath is blessed. I thought I would get bored (as I was a work-aholic)but my Sabbath observance time is renewing and revitalising. The author writes that the "book is written with an earnest longing for the masses of people who do not experience the rest, identity, security, peace, family health and closeness to Christ that are found in true Sabbath observence" (page vii).
The author has touched my life forever. I actually get a taste of what heaven can be like when I observe the Sabbath. My family and I go for a walk along the beach and I feel so close to our Greator that I experience a peace that transends all understanding. My 18 year old daughter feels the same way. She says that the Sabbath is a time to focus on God and his creation. As we walk along the beach or go for a bush walk during the Sabbath she comments on how much closer she feels towards our Creator.
The book is well argued in regards to why it is important to rest and worship God on the seventh day. It outlines practical ways on how to observe the Sabbath. I didn't know how to observe the Sabbath until I read the author's arguments on the purpose of the Sabbath. Once I realised the purpose of the Sabbath I was able to adjust my lifestyle to reflect these purposes.
If I didn't read this book I would still be working on Saturdays, ignoring God's creation and neglecting the need for my family to be in touch with God and with each other.
I thank God that this book has been written. Without knowing the truth about Sabbath keeping I don't know where I'd be today. My health has improved, my family relationships are fantastic and my relationship with God has deepened. I believe I am a new and improved Christian after reading this book and implementing the principles outlined in this insightful and encouraging text.
