What have you lost recently? Your car keys? Your mind?
Sometimes the holidays can be a little crazy but hopefully mixed with the warmth of being with people you care about. As we move into a new year, let’s think about God restoring what has been lost in one way or another.
The Jubilee year for the Jews was to be a time that brought freedom and restoration. It was an extension of the Sabbath laws. Every week there was to be a day to rest and be restored, to worship and get away from work and everyday tasks to focus on God and to give thanks. Sundays are that day for us in the Christian church. It is healthy for us to drop our usual routine and come together with God’s people for a time of spiritual refreshing. It gives us the energy and food we need to serve God throughout the coming week.
