The Sacred Day, A Sanctuary in Time
Author: Dale Henkes - 256 pages, soft cover
First mentioned in Genesis 2:2-3, the seventh day of the week was blessed and made holy by God. How can a time be holy? What is the relevance of the weekly cycle in God’s will for our lives? For whom was the Sabbath made? The Bible answers these questions in beautiful detail, revealing God’s merciful character from the creation of this world to the beginning of the next.
Of all the blessings in scripture, the blessing of the Lord’s Day is one often forgotten. Fortunately, it is easily accessible. Characterized by rest and remembrance, its observance brings profound spiritual benefits every week. The Sacred Day pairs Bible passages with historical and contemporary insight, bringing light to the relevance of the Sabbath in our walk with Christ.
With a focus on scripture and an eye on God’s children throughout history, this study answers questions that many scholars have not even thought to ask. Does the New Testament specifically discuss the Sabbath’s relevance for God’s children today? How did the question of the Sabbath play into the Protestant Reformation? How did the apostles utilize the Sabbath in their ministry? Knowledge of God’s Word is yours. The revelations of God belong to us and our children forever (Deuteronomy 29:29). So pick up your copy of The Sacred Day, crack open your reference Bible, and invite the Holy Spirit to reveal the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2).
