Lord of My Limits

Lord of My Limits

Sep 09, 2018

Passage: Exodus 20:8-11

Preacher: Multiple Speakers

Series: Lord

Category: Old Testament, Theology

Detail:

Ultimately when we keep the Sabbath, we are tapping in to the foundations of our faith. And we do it in obedience to God.

This week's sermon

Tom Pipkin - Worship Center; Jennifer Holz - Sanctuary

The Sabbath is a great gift of God. It is a day of restful and joyful communion with God—a “festive day of rest” (Heidelberg Catechism, Q103) to be filled with worship, life-giving practices and renewal. I walk away from this opportunity when I believe that my activity is the only determining factor in my success. I think I have to do more and more without ceasing for rest or I will not attain my full potential. This commandment reminds us that God sets our limits. Jesus is the Lord of my limits. I’m not God and my ceaseless activity does not determine my value. I have limits. God knows them. God defines them. I rest behind them in the Lord.

About This Series: LORD

Our fall discipleship series focuses on the Ten Commandments. Not only what they teach us not to do, but what to do. Jesus is Savior and Lord. Once we know him as Savior, it’s time to begin to allow His lordship in every corner of our lives. I can easily recognize Jesus as “Lord” in some abstract way. He’s Lord of the universe. He’s Lord of all history. But it gets harder when I think about His lordship in my own life. Is He really my master when I’m thinking about my relationships with my family? Is Jesus my first consult and guide when I’m arranging my finances? So much of discipleship is simply about loving Jesus more—loving Jesus more than desires of the flesh, loving Jesus more than money, loving Jesus more than what my neighbor has. The Ten Commandments are a great measure of our hearts. Do we love Jesus more than these? Jesus is Lord.
