The Sabbath Day

Submit questions  -  New Articles
What day is the Sabbath in the Bible? Does justification by the grace of God through faith abolish its observance? Does the New Testament establish Sunday as the time to rest and worship our Creator? On the other hand, does it even matter whether we rest on Sunday, Saturday or any other time period? How is the fourth commandment related to the Jubilee year? Is the commandment to rest meant to be a legalistic burden or the freedom to dedicating ourselves to learning eternal spiritual principles? At what time does the Sabbath day begin and end?

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, a single day EACH WEEK, as HE wills (not us), strikes many as unrealistic or even legalistic. Resting and worshipping on the 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.
