God speaks of things that are not as though they are in this chapter, and it is wonderful. He tells Moses, "After you enter the land I am giving you as a home..." But in the midst of these words of promise are serious commands that give me pause.
In verses 32 through 36, a Sabbath-Breaker is put to death. Just before that, in verse 31, it says, "Because he has despised the Lord's word and broken his commands, that person must surely be cut off; his guilt remains on him."
This challenges me greatly that I may be guilty of living in a false grace that fails to obey God in fulness -- as regards the Sabbath. Whatever else may change because of the death and resurrection of Jesus, I do not believe that God changed His mind about all of us working for six days and having one day a week in which we rest and focus on God.
