Sabbath, an act of faith - Bertus Nel

How Healthy Is Your Practice of Sabbath Delight?


  1. I regularly practice Sabbath by setting aside a twenty-four-hour period in which I stop my work and rest.
  2. Sabbath provides a healthy boundary and limits around my paid and unpaid work.
  3. I take time on my weekly Sabbath to delight in God's innumerable gifts (e.g., people, beauty, hobbies, mountains, food, music, etc)
  4. I view the Sabbath as a day to practice eternity and taste the ultimate Sabbath rest when I will see Jesus face-to-face.
  5. I practice Sabbath as a prophetic, countercultural act that resists the culture's value that defines me by what I do rather than who I am (i.e., God's beloved son/daughter).
  6. I am comfortable letting go of my responsibilities on Sabbath, fully trusting God to run the world and build his kingdom without me.
  7. I find my identity primarily in God's love rather than in my work or my role as a leader.
  8. l often receive unexpected insights and discernment during Sabbath.
  9. l apply my Sabbath guidelines of stop, rest, delight, and contemplate to extended vacations and holidays
  10. I intentionally prepare and plan for Sabbath so that I have the time and space to focus on Goď's love coming to me through the many gifts from his hand.
