Because it was Shabbat, he wanted to chat about the Sabbath He began by asking me why God created man. My initial response was ‘to give Him glory’ believing that was the correct answer. He told me that was a good response, but was not the reason God created Adam.
Our family along with the family of our daughter-in-law designed a Sabbath booklet to encourage those who are desiring to celebrate the Sabbath. It includes a simple outline incorporating some of the Friday evening Jewish traditions of candles, bread, wine, and blessings with Yeshua central to each. Print the PDF from our website and let it guide you and your family to “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.”
When Adonai created the Sabbath, He never said, “There was evening and morning, the seventh day.” He created the Sabbath for eternal fellowship with his glorious creation. Adam and Eve, along with all of their children, were to live in the Garden forever, but sin ended the eternal day. In order for mankind to “remember” God’s promise of restoration, He commanded mankind to “remember” the Sabbath as a vision of Eternity to come.
