Day 21

“For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.” ‭Matthew‬ ‭12:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

A.W. Tozer had a way of directly calling believers into a deeper walk with Christ. He wrote,
“No Bible-taught Christian can allow himself to live in bondage to days and times and seasons (Colossians 2:16–17; Romans 14:4–10; 2 Corinthians 3:5–18). He knows he is free from the Law, and the Judaizing brethren who seek to rivet a yoke on his neck will not have much success. But he nevertheless appreciates the value of one day in seven to devote to prayer and praise. And since Christ arose from the dead on the first day, the Bible-loving man will see the spiritual appropriateness of the first day as the Christian’s voluntary sabbath day.”

Today, as you enter His rest, do so with the appreciation and awareness that honoring the Sabbath is another way that we as believers live out the power of Christ’s death and resurrection. Jesus IS the Lord of the Sabbath. He made possible this true rest in Him through the full forgiveness of sins and the freedom we have as His children.
 
  1. Welcome the Lord into this time of personal and private worship. In prayer, thank Him for the ways He’s provided, protected, and met you during the 21 Days of Prayer. 
  2. Celebrate today the gift of salvation that you have in Jesus by writing down the privileges and joys you have as His beloved child. When you are finished, take time in His Presence to thank Him. 
  3. Tonight we close out the 21 Days of Prayer with an extended time of outdoor worship and prayer. Bring a chair or blanket and join us for Worship on The Lawn at 6 pm. For more information and RSVP click here.
