THE SON OF MAN IS LORD OF THE SABBATH
Matthew 12:7-8 “If you had known what these words mean, I desire mercy, not sacrifice. You would not have condemned the innocent. For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”
The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath. Jesus never revoked the principle of the Sabbath day. It was intended as a day of spiritual and physical rest. He was displeased with the misuse of the Sabbath day by the Jewish teachers.
The Sabbath should be dedicated to the Lord God, to learn more about God, and seek His will. After all, didn’t He create the Sabbath and didn’t He create us so we could worship Him?
WHO AM I?
Hello and welcome to my blog.
Thanks for taking the time to visit.
I was a medical missionary for almost thirty years in West Africa. Celestial Safaris are devotions about people, places and situations in Africa.
I've worked in Senegal, Liberia, Sierre Leonne, Ghana, Benin, Kenya and Zaire. I spent thirteen years in Nigeria establishing mobile clinics and another thirteen years in Togo.
I took time out to complete a Bachelor's degree in Theology, a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and a Masters of Science in Community Development.
I pray these devotions will bless and encourage you.
