Jesus is a better sabbath

 

Disclaimer: We are a reformed church, and we are proud to be so! But, as it must sometimes be, we’ve had to disagree with those who’ve come before us (and who’ve written our confession). We haven’t done so lightly or often (actually only two places, both concerning the sabbath), but we still have had to disagree. 

I intend to eventually post my thoughts on this issue here, but right now I just was being so overwhelmed with how much better Jesus is than the sabbath which he fulfilled, that I needed to write out some of those amazing glories!
