Exodus 23:10-19 Resting and Feasting Summary: Imagine what it might have been like to grow up as one of God's children in Israel. God wanted them to learn about all he had done for them, so he called them to regular patterns of celebration. He gave them the gift of rest on the Sabbath, and also he gave them three yearly feasts to stop and remember his faithfulness. This week, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, God wants us to stop and remember all he has done for us! Outline: 1. The gift of Sabbath: God gives rest to his creation 2. The gift of feasting: a. Passover: Stop and remember his salvation b. Harvest: Stop and remember his provision c. Ingathering: The first Thanksgiving Verse: (1Cor. 5:7b-8a): ...For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 8 Let us therefore celebrate the festival... Questions for devotions and family worship: 1. What was the specific reason given in these verses for the Sabbath year and weekly Sabbath? How might these reasons shape or even change some of our thoughts about Sabbath keeping? 2. What was the significance of the three yearly feasts that God commanded Israel? What do we learn about God's saving power and mercy through each of them? 3. How might they show us more of Jesus's saving work? 4. Although Christians are no longer commanded to celebrate the Feasts of Unleavened Bread, Harvest and Ingathering, what can we learn about what it means to stop, remember, and celebrate God's goodness? How can that help you this week for example, as we celebrate Thanksgiving?
