Welcome to Eastern Hills Baptist Church
We are so glad that you decided to join us in worship today. Here at Eastern Hills we realize that we are all in different places on our journey with Christ, and that's okay. Whether you are a seeker, looking for answers, or a long-time follower of Christ, you are welcome here.
This Morning's Key Points:

1) Why was the Sabbath given? Reminder.

2) What is the Sabbath's purpose? Refreshment.

A) Sabbath provides refreshment to our bodies.

B) Sabbath provides refreshment to our souls.

3) What does the Sabbath promise? Renewal.

“We all know we need rest from work, but we don’t realize we have to work hard just to rest. We have to plan for breaks. We have to schedule time to be unscheduled. That’s the way life is for most of us. Scattered, frantic, boundary-less busyness comes naturally. The rhythms of work and rest require planning. More than that, they require godly habits. I have never had trouble finding time for our Sunday worship services. Not once. I’m never double-booked during those times. I never feel pressure to say yes to another request or squeeze in another appointment at eleven o’clock Sunday morning. Why? Because it’s a habit, has been my whole life. I go to church on Sunday. It’s there. It’s fixed. I’ve planned for it."

Kevin DeYoung, Crazy Busy, p. 98-99
"The banner over the seventh day of creation is, “It is finished” (Gen 2:1-2). The banner over the believer at the cross as a new creation in Christ is, “It is finished” (John 19:30). And the banner over the re-creation of all things is, “It is finished” (Rev. 21:5-6)."

— Jen Wilkin, Ten Words to Live By, p. 72

Discuss this as a family this week:

-- What is something that you find relaxing/refreshing? Why?
-- Do you think observing the Sabbath is important? Why or why not?
-- On a scale of 1–10 (10 being way too busy and 1 being way too lazy), how would you rate your daily routine? What effect do you think this is having on your relationship with God and with others around you?
-- How are you at observing the Sabbath? Do you take a weekly Sabbath? If not, why?
