The late Dr Samuele Bacchiocchi, professor emeritus of Andrew University presenting a talk entitled, Divine Rest For Human Restlessness. In a world full of restlessness due to the hectic pace of activities and competition for first place most of us are stressed and depressed and need rest. The Bible presents a God who mandated a rest called Sabbath when man is called upon to rest and find time to focus on the source of all things and creator of all things, the God of heaven.
This talk will give you confidence that God is indeed a God of love and prepared in advance for the need for man to rest both physically and spiritually. If only we had remembered to keep the Sabbath, incidences of stress and depression could have been almost negligible. Unfortunately man forgot and thinks that this mandate no longer applies this side of the cross.
