The Sabbath is more than just spending time in church and prayer. It is a precious day to be eagerly awaited like a bride coming to her husband. It is not simply a day of prayer but a day of spiritual enrichment, where we feed our spirits with the word of God and spend time in worship before God.
The Sabbath is not simply a day of eating, but a day of feasting more lavishly than normal (now the Jewish figure makes sense, tee hee). Isn't that such a beautiful picture, we not only get to feed our bodies in a way that will allow us to feel truly satisfied but we feed our spirits and nourish our spirit man too.
I think if we were to ask God to open our spiritual eyes, what would see would be a bunch of anorexic Christians. Let's be honest, most of us go to church out of duty or habit, we seldom make the effort to feast our spirit man in God's presence.
Why not ask God to create a desire within you for the coming Sabbath, ask him for a hunger for his word. Then prepare your heart to feast before God in worship.
