Today's message is simple. It's pure. It's sweet. It's packed with old power.

During the last few days, I've been asking the Holy Ghost to lead me to a "fresh word". As I flipped the pages of my Bible and landed in Genesis chapters one and two, I laughed out loud. Why did I laugh? Because of God's irony. His humor. I asked for a fresh word but it was more of a "refresher". It was a reminder of the beginning. Someone may say, well Genesis is the oldest book in the bible! How can anything be fresh? Please! Listen up Linda!

The Word of God is new in every opportunity of studying. It will never grow old and it will never stale. It's the reason why we can hear ten different Pastors preach the 23 Psalms ten unique ways. So what's the point of today's message? Let's go to scripture.

Genesis 2: 2-3 reads, "And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made".

Today's message is a reminder to slow down some in life. Let's go back to our basic roots and our basic foundation. When I was a child, my mother worked hard during the week. We went to school and Saturday's was the day we would all be at home together. We would wake up, clean up, prepare our school clothes for the next week. We would do some dusting, vacuuming, and any laundry. I remember my mother would say on Saturday's we clean before we run any errands but on Sunday's, we rest. We did no housework on Sunday's. She would even cook Sunday's meal on Saturday evening.

Different religions observe Sabbath on different days. Seventh Day Adventist observe the Sabbath on Saturday's. The Jewish Sabbath is observed from nightfall Friday to nightfall Saturday. In Eastern Christianity, the Sabbath is observed on Saturday's in remembrance of the Hebrew Sabbath. Some traditional Christian sectors observe Sabbath on Sunday's, which is the first day of the week, on Western Calendars.

Whichever manner you observe the Sabbath, I believe God want us to have a day of rest and focus on His grace, His mercy, and His love. As we keep the Sabbath holy, reflect on His Son, Jesus Christ. Hold your families close to you on the Sabbath. Spend quality time with the people you love. Do something good for someone else. Move yourself to the side and ask God how we can be of service to Him in the coming week. Spend less time on social media. If possible, spend a less time handling business and managing business calls. Each of our situations differ; but you get the point. If you're one of those people who work the weekends, ask God to move anything out of the way that stands between your closeness to Him. God will certainly make provisions when we ask Him.

Father God in the name of Jesus, forgive us God for our sins. Forgive us God for not observing the Sabbath and not keeping a day of holiness. Father God forgive us for our lack of knowledge. Your word says in Hosea 4:6, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge". Father God open our hearts, our eyes, and our ears to receive You. To See You. And to hear from You. Father God make ours spirits more vulnerable to the Holy Ghost so we may hear how to best honor You in our individual lives. Father God we thank You for the gift of Your Son Jesus the Christ. Father God I thank you for my personal salvation.

A long time ago I accepted Your Son Jesus. I accepted the invitation of Salvation. I vowed to honor You God and to lead a life of love and honor in Your name. Father God I pray for every lost soul reading this blog entry. Father God save the lost. Father God some are thirsty and hungry. Father I ask that You give them the same drink that Jesus offered the woman at the well. In John chapter 4, while traveling through Samaria, Jesus encounters a woman at a well and tells her that he can provide a "living water" that will extinguish all thirst. Father God we love You today and we bless Your holy name. Father God we want to go back old-school. Back to the foundation that is available for us in Genesis.

It's in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
