Leviticus 23:1-22: Sabbath

A meeting called between the Lord and man,
The frail and mortal witness the Divine.
Since we can not within His presence stand,
The Lord will condescend to come into our time.
Commit yourselves to service to the Lord,
And rest that you may worship on that day,
And tithe your tribute – time and produce stored,
To follow Him and spend a day in praise.
The purpose simply not but to obey,
But imitation of our Father’s deeds:
The principle of resting for a day,
The shadows of what Christ soon would succeed.
And pointing yet until another time:
The Rest of rests – when we become His bride.
