      Ideally situated to treat Sabbath-envy with a severely arched eyebrow, I found this hybrid of a book — part spiritual memoir, part religious history and sociological analysis and literary. The first Sabbath Thoughts was just a simple email sent out to maybe ten or twelve of my friends who were interested. It sort of grew from there as more people found out about it and asked to be added to the weekly mailing list—today Sabbath Thoughts consists of a mailing list, this blog, a Facebook page, and a Twitter can join the mailing list and receive the latest Sabbath.

So when Paul said, "The law is spiritual," he included the institution of the Sabbath, which was to be devoted exclusively to things that are spiritual.

Since God included the Sabbath in the 10 Commandments, He must have thought it was important. Of course today we are saved by faith in Jesus Christ, not by following commandments.

In Abrahamic religions, the Sabbath (/ ˈ s æ b ə θ /; Hebrew: שַׁבָּת ‎) is a day set aside for rest and worship. According to the Book of Exodus, the Sabbath is a day of rest on the seventh day, commanded by God to be kept as a holy day of rest, as God rested from creation.

The Shabbat laws are quite complex, requiring careful study and a qualified teacher. At first, it's often overwhelming and seems like an impossible number of restrictions. But spending shabbat with others who are shabbat observant will show you that eventually, you, too, will become comfortable with the Shabbat laws, as long as you realize that becoming shomer shabbat (shabbat observant) is a.

The Sabbath from Creation to Eternity. The Sabbath was established at creation before sin and was therefore part of God’s perfect plan from the very beginning.

God also blessed and sanctified this day for Holy use at creation. This is the only reason we have a seven day week. If God did not want a seventh day Sabbath, then the whole world. The thoughts and tips about this practice come from the classic book called Sabbath – Finding Rest, Renewal and Delight in our Busy Lives by Wayne Muller.

The weekly Sabbath became a time when Israel, in the midst of an unredeemed world, could enter an Eden-like existence. In rabbinic thought there is a link between the Sabbath and the Tabernacle since certain passages (Exodus and Exodus 35) seem to juxtapose the two.
