Virginia Beach Reformation Conference 2018

“The Christian Sabbath: Living in Light of the Resurrection”

Are you spiritually healthy? How do you know? Those who think they are healthy and strong often realize they are out of shape when they start exercising. So it is with the Christian life. Christians are in Christ now, but the Spirit enables them to grow up in Christ through spiritual exercise, so they might live all of life to the glory of God.

The triune God gave us the Sabbath to be one of the greatest means to stretch our spiritual muscles, to grow in godliness, and to learn to long for heaven. Sabbath-keeping can both show us how spiritually out of shape we are and provides us the means to grow strong in the Lord.

In this conference, Dr. Ryan McGraw seeks to show how the Sabbath should function in the Christian life by exploring God’s design for the Sabbath and how it fits in the Christian life.

Ryan M. McGraw (PhD; ThM; MDiv; BA) is Professor of Systematic Theology at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary and Adjunct Professor of Doctoral Studies at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary.
