The Bible Sabbath

What day is the Bible Sabbath? Does justification by the grace of God through faith abolish its observance? Does the New Testament establish Sunday as the day to rest and worship our Creator? On the other hand, does it even matter whether we rest on Sunday, Saturday or any other day of the week? What things should and should not be done on the day of rest? At what time does the Sabbath begin and end? Is the day meant to be a legalistic burden or the freedom to dedicating ourselves to learning eternal spiritual principles?

It is very tempting for us to think of time, created by God, as something we own and therefore can do with it whatever we wish. The concept that our Creator not only owns but commands we use a particular twenty-four hour period, EACH WEEK, as HE wills (not us) strikes many as unrealistic or even legalistic. Resting and worshipping on the Bible Sabbath, however, is one of the primary ways mankind can acknowledge the Being who makes our lives possible and fellowship with the Creator who perfectly loves us.

Did you know . . . ?

The apostle John canonized the New Testament before he died around 100 A.D. Sheep are the most frequently mentioned animal in God's word. Only two Old Testament books are named after women, Ruth and Esther.

The 1535 A.D. Coverdale translation has been called by some the "Bug" translation because the fifth verse of Psalm 91 reads "Thou shalt not need to be afrayd for eny BUGGES by night."
