Did you ever stop to think that if we keep the Sabbath because we are tired, we are not really keeping this day holy as we should be? Remember, the Sabbath was created before there was weariness. What is God's plan for the Sabbath? What does true Sabbath-keeping entail? Let us read what the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy say.

“The Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath” (Mark 2:28).

 

“In the time of the end every divine institution is to be restored. The breach made in the law at the time the Sabbath was changed by man, is to be repaired” (Prophets and Kings, p. 678}.

 

“[God] shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began” (Acts 3:20, 21).

Photo updates from our Regional Secretary for Northern Africa.

Despite significant hurdles like poverty and war, the work in Northern Africa is advancing by God's grace. Brother John Bosco, the General Conference's Regional Secretary for Northern Africa has sent the photos below as updates on the work in Tanzania, Cameroon, and Sierra Leone.

 

Geographically, these countries are in East Africa, Central Africa, and West Africa respectfully. When the work in Africa became too large for one Regional Secretary for Africa, it was divided into two regions assigned to two regional secretaries—Northern and Southern Africa.

Why is rest so important? What would happen if we did not designate a day for resting from our daily activities?

We left the times of slavery and long hours of the Industrial Revolution only to return to them by our own free will. Demanding routines, challenging projects, lofty goals, are part of today's daily life. When possible, we work incessantly. Time does not allow for pauses. This is what many of us think and how many of us act. But the body and mind ask for a break. Not just a few minutes of break during a long day, nor the hours of sleep, which are often neglected.
