The Aim of the Sabbath

Matthew 12:9–14

John Calvin comments, “Nothing could be more unreasonable than to pronounce a man, who imitated God, to be a transgressor of the Sabbath.” The Father gives His law for our benefit, and we must never forget this lest we improperly apply it to our lives here and now. Take some time today to read through the Ten Commandments (Ex. 20:1–17) and think on how each one carries with it a specific benefit for mankind.

For further study:

Ps. 119:97–104

The Bible in a year:

1 Kings 21–22

For the weekend:

2 Kings 1–6
