Megachurch Pastor: Take The Day Off. Sabbath Deficiency Syndrome, Great Silent Epidemic of Our Time

Gateway Church pastor Robert Morris identifies ‘dangerous,’ ‘great silent epidemic of our time’. The pastor of Gateway Church, a megachurch in Dallas, Texas, Morris knows he’s not alone in his struggle to rest, refresh, and renew his mind. He cited statistics revealing an estimated 75-90% of all doctor visits are for stress-related issues, and five out of six of the leading causes of death today are stress-related.

“Sabbath Deficiency Syndrome is the great silent epidemic of our time,” the pastor said.

Morris argued that the fourth commandment given to Moses by God is simple: “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.” Yet, it’s the “most ignored commandment” in Scripture.

“It’s not a suggestion; it’s a requirement,” he emphasized. “It’s not about going to church; it’s about resting, doing our work in six days and resting on the seventh. Yet, many Christians will tell you we should do all nine of the commandments. They know lying, committing adultery, and stealing is wrong. But they don’t have a problem with working seven days a week.”

“The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath,” Morris added, quoting Mark 2:27. “It’s a gift from God. With the Ten Commandments, God is giving us principles to better our lives. It’s the same thing with resting. We need time to follow the principles God has laid out in Scripture to live a healthy, God-honoring life.”

In his new book Take the Day Off, Morris shows his belief in the false Sabbath commonly called Sunday

Truly resting, the pastor contended, takes humility, adding: “It means I trust God will provide for me if my Sabbath is a day of rest. It comes down to a matter of trust. If I really believe that God is bigger and smarter than I am, I believe He will provide for me even if I don’t work for one day.”

The Sabbath is a “gift” from God that is all-too-often rejected by the receiver, according to Morris. He encouraged readers to “thankfully and humbly receive this free gift from God,” understanding it is for their ultimate good.

“God says, ‘If you’ll take a day off and have fun, I’ll take business for you while you do that,’ yet we argue with Him about it,” he said. “The Sabbath is a benefit and blessing and gift. I hope people realize that, ‘If I do this, if I obey God’s commandment, I will have a better physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental life and live in the fullness He has for me.'”

Through a series of divine interventions, God began calling David into the full-time ministry in 2006. At the time he was a legal service broker and on an ambitious path. Although he had other plans, David started responding to God’s call. He prayed, “Lord, if it isn’t your will I succeed, please don’t allow me to.” Listen to a brief portion of David’s story of how God led him where he is today.
