Serving others is a key!
One of the questions asked in Sacred Sabbath is 'what does it mean to serve the Lord?' Well, for one thing it has nothing to do with the work of a waiter or waitress in a restaurant. God is not waiting for us to bring Him the things He ordered. God doesn't need anything from us. The bible explains this in Acts 17:25

Nor does He need anything that we can supply by working for Him, since it is He Himself who gives life and breath and everything else to everyone.He does not need our service, but He wants us to serve others. That is what He loves. We can find ways to serve the Lord throughout the bible. Loving, serving and obeying cannot be separated. I want to put it this way: out of love for God, we will serve others, and in doing so, we'll obey Him!

A new commandment

Love is the fulfillment of the Law
Every now and then people ask me why I write about the Ten Commandments. Didn't Jesus came to free us from the Law? Didn't Jesus came to fulfill the Law? Why write about something that has been fulfilled? We cannot do what Jesus did.
Well, Jesus taught me to answer a question with another question. So I challenge everyone who isn't sure about this law thing; When Jesus gave us the new commandment to love another as He loved us (John 13:34), was He commanding us to do something, yes or no?
If your answer is no, you don't believe what Jesus said. If your answer is yes, you know what to do: love one another. Do you realize what that means, to love one another?

Love is the fulfillment of the Law (Romans 13:10).

In loving others we fulfill the Law, just like Jesus did when He loved us. Yes, we can and must follow in his footsteps and do what we are told to do. This book series will open your eyes to the words of Jesus when He said He came to fulfill the Law. You will see what His plan for the New Testament generation is. Freedom in fulfillment! Romans 8:2 says:

For the law of the Spirit, which brings us life in union with Christ Jesus, has set us free from the law of sin and death.

Contract for audio book signed

Sacred Sabbath soon available as audio book!
Personally I love nothing better then to hold a real book, with pages, letters, a colorful cover and all, in my hands. I must admit I have sometimes purchased books only because the cover was so beautiful or the lay-out was just awesome! There are books everywhere in our house, I just love books! I do realize however, that millions of people find it easier to listen to books on tapes or CD's or to download them in MP3 format on their computers and i-pods. Thanks to modern technology the possiblities to reach people all over the world are endless.
I see it as exciting news that Tate Publishing is going to publish the first book in the Ten Commandments Series as an audio book. In doing so, we will enlarge our reading audience and reach more people with the good news. Jesus said in Mark 16:15

Go throughout the whole world and preach the gospel to all mankind.
