Remembering the Sabbath


What was the most fun you have at work and what did you do?
What does your perfect day look like?


Read Exodus 20:8-11

What was the longest time that you went without a day off to rest? How did it feel not having a day off (physically and mentally)?

This weekend Dudley had 3 points to his message, they were…
The need to work (v.9)
The necessity of rest (v.9-11)
The never ending call to worship (v.10)

What are some of your indicators that let you know you need to rest or take some time off?

What is the hardest part of your job? (All of you stay at home Mom’s; yes this applies to you too.)

Read 2 Thessalonians 3:5-11

What are some of the key truths that you see in this passage about the positive aspects of working?

How do you balance work, rest and worship?

Read Mark 2:23-28

How does this scripture help you understand the purpose of a Sabbath?

Have you ever taken a whole day and dedicated it to the Lord?
(Example; taking a day specifically for prayer, taken a walk/hike just to give thanks for what he created, or gone on a silent retreat.)
If so please share your experience.


Read and pray through Psalm 62

****Group Challenge: have everyone in your group go out this week to a solitary place to spend at least 2 hours alone with GOD in prayer.


Invite one person from your group to the next HOST TRAINING on July 12 so that they can launch a group. This will provide space in your group for new members and another open home for others who are not yet connected with a LIFE GROUP.
