Hello P31 OBSers! (That's YOU)
I'm Katrina Wylie, your study leader for this week. Are you ready to find freedom through Sabbath? I hope so, because it's time to kick off Breathe!
Every week, in your Breathe book, you're going to find a "Big Idea" listed that we're going to focus on. This week's is:
"The Sabbath Principle is the key to freedom."
When I first read this, I thought, "What in the world does Sabbath have to do with freedom?" In our Verse of the Week, though, we're reminded and urged:
"For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery." Galatians 5:1 (ESV)
Guys, the topic of freedom is important to God. In fact, it's so important He sent His only Son to die so we can have it (John 3:16; John 10:10; Romans 6:22). I don't know about you, but that makes me want to learn how to stand firm, not submit to slavery, and what Sabbath has to do with that!
This week's study is not only going to help us understand what Sabbath has to do with freedom, but it's also going to help us begin to identify where and how we need to make changes in order to live in freedom. So let's get started!
This Week's Homework:
We're digging into the Week 1 section of our Breathe books (pages 8-35). If you'd like a suggested daily plan to follow, we've got you covered with our Week at a Glance resource. If you haven't already, click here to get your copy and other freebies (like the first week of book content).

What are your initial thoughts when you hear the word "Sabbath"? Have you ever thought of it as a way to find freedom?
