“On Sundays I go home and take a nap to the glory of God.”
I’ll never forget these words. They were said by Dr. Ligon Duncan, Chancellor of Reformed Theological Seminary in a lecture on the importance of observing Sabbath rest. I had studied what the Scripture says about Sabbath for years, but I think this was the moment where I finally understood the purpose of the Sabbath.
We need to rest. After all, The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath (Mark 2:27).
