This is the last in a series of seven posts where I share my thoughts about my song Creation and the story in the first chapter of Genesis.
“This story tells God had a plan
And an order before He even started on man
So the seventh day God took a rest
Because He’d gone and done His best
And the sixth day God made the beast of land
He made the woman and he made the man
And the fifth day God made the fish and bird
He made them all with His Holy word
And the fourth day God filled the sky with lights
The sun for day and the moon for nights
And the third day God made the plants and trees
He made dry ground and He made the seas
And the second day God made the sky
The water split so the firmament’s dry
And the first day God made the heavens and earth
Split the dark and light in the universe
And to mark the time there was morning and evening
And He saw that it was good”
God rests on the seventh day. I think the next mention of a Sabbath as a thing for God’s people is when they are given the 10 Commandments. I believe it’s very likely that the observance of the Sabbath was something common well before it was established as the law given to Moses. Nevertheless, this part of the creation story is here to establish a reason for this to be a thing for God’s people. Is there a good reason that we would observe a Sabbath? A scientific reason to do this? A reason other than a religious reason? I don’t think so. We do it because we believe in a power higher than us. A power that was able to create all of this. We pause in awe of God. We pause to acknowledge his presence in our world.
