God declared time to be "hallowed." The very first thing that is said to be "hallowed" in the Bible is the Sabbath (Genesis 2:2-3). Other ways to describe the hallowing of time is to say that time is sacred, holy and sanctified by God. The Sabbath is the holy rest that celebrates work well done. As such, it is connected to the previous six days and thereby sanctifies all time, not just the seventh day.The Sabbath is a sanctuary of time within the ordinary life of the people of God. It celebrates God's creative power during the creation of the world. Later on, it also celebrates God's act of liberating his people from Egypt. The purpose of the Sabbath is to sanctify time, rest and creative/liberating effort The best way to approach the Sabbath is with a spirit of thanksgiving, remembrance and celebration.
