He Rested by Max Lucado
“He rested on the seventh day.” Exodus 20:11, The Message
Read what Jesus did during the last Sabbath of his life. Start in the Gospel of Matthew. Didn’t find anything? Try Mark…. Nothing there either? Strange. What about Luke?... Not a word about it? Well, try John. Surely John mentions the Sabbath. He doesn’t?
No reference? Hmmmm. Looks like Jesus was quiet that day….
“You mean with one week left to live, Jesus observed the Sabbath?” As far as we can tell.
.“When a man is getting better, he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still in him. When a man is getting worse, he understands his own badness less and less.” ~ C. S. Lewis
Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death -- that is, the devil.
