“Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue ruler said to the people, ‘There are six days for work. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath’” (Luke 13:14).
Why do people go to the synagogue or to church? It is to meet with God and to worship him. On this particular Sabbath, God was there in the assembly and the spiritual leader was telling him how he should behave.
The Sabbath is a day when we choose not to work so that we can focus on God without distractions. The synagogue ruler, however, was focused entirely on his interpretation of the Sabbath to the exclusion of the Creator and Redeemer.
The purpose of the Sabbath is to set aside a day, every week, when God and man can come together in a healing relationship. That’s what Jesus was there for.
