“I saw something in studying the Sabbath about the character of God that I had never seen before,” said Dr. Rebekah Josberger during a recent Internet telecast of Faithlife Today. Josberger speaks with such insight and passion for the Sabbath that at first I thought she must be a Seventh-day Adventist.
Josberger shared from her research as well as personal experience regarding the Sabbath.
Here are several of her observations:
- Important as my work is to me, I need the Sabbath to remind me that the world doesn’t revolve around me.
- Leaving all work responsibilities in God’s care on Sabbath is a refreshing act of trust.
- Being a God of rest, He graciously welcomes us into rest every week.
Indeed I was thrilled to hear Dr. Josberger say all that—but then came a letdown when she applied all those Sabbath-keeping principles to Sunday. Not dogmatically but in the context of what the Sabbath means to her personally. Although SDAs obviously can’t agree with her timing of the Sabbath, perhaps we can all enjoy her invigorating talks about how the day can be kept.

One pleasant surprise for me is that the Andrews University Press Sabbath Studies Collection is featured on the Faithlife Today page, inviting all Logos customers to purchase it. Scroll down on that Faithlife Today page and you’ll see it! Or just click here. If you don’t already own that three-volume set, you can download it today.
Another option to own the Sabbath Studies Collection from AUP is to get it at a steep discount as part of the SDA Silver base package. Click here to learn about all the exciting Adventist resources in SDA Silver (including the entire Lifeworks of Ellen G. White).
