Psalm 91 (August 9, 2020
In the Shadow
It’s good to be back! We had some good times traveling and working on other things and for other people these past two weeks, so I’m grateful to have been afforded that. If you were wondering, I don’t plan to be gone again until October, probably.
“Jesus Cared about the Lord’s Day. A lot.”

Our scripture lesson today comes from Luke 14. We will read the passage where Jesus is addressing a group of Pharisees with whom He is dining and the subject of the Sabbath comes up — the Old Testament Sabbath, the Hebrew Sabbath, the seventh day of rest which was appointed by God, commanded in Exodus and in Deuteronomy, a sign that set Israel apart from the nations around them.
