Chapter Two...The Questions (Part 4)


The question has to do with breaking the law.  The law was set up to bring light to sin and guide us to do what's right.  Jesus points out the incident when David had eaten the consecrated bread because they were hungry and in need.  The law Jesus was "breaking" was "working" on the Sabbath day, he finishes his answer saying, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.  So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath."

The Sabbath day rest was a gift from God in order for us to enjoy, not a demand to fulfill requirements and thus be accepted.  So it is with the law.  The law was made to help us, it was not meant to be a burden.

The Sabbath day is a gift to us from God in order to rest from the business of life.  It's not meant to be a burden or a rule that needs to be kept.  It's beneficial; it's needed.
