THE SABBATH—DAY OF LIBERATION

Christian Scientists joyously unite with other Christians in dedicating the Sabbath day to God. They realize that such a dedication can be genuine only as it rises above the pressures of worldly cares to the realization of the verities of Spirit. The Sabbath can be truly hallowed only as thought is uplifted to the true understanding of God and the clear perception that the real man is His spiritual image and likeness. When this joyous, illuminated state of consciousness, which knows only the ever-presence of divine Love, is achieved, it brings immediate liberation from earth's burdens, healing the sick and reforming the sinner.

In Jeremiah we read (17:21), "Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem." In many other Scriptural passages the Sabbath is similarly spoken of as a day of rest and release from earthly burdens. Christ Jesus amplified this view, realizing that the Sabbath should provide not merely temporary release or rest from worldly cares, but permanent healing of every type of bondage with which mortals suffer.
