Remember the Sabbath Day to Keep It Holy
Today is Sunday, the first day of the week, and I hope you all are going (or have gone) to church today.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. – Exodus 20:8 KJV
So keep today holy, but wait a minute. What do the following verses say?
“Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.” – Exodus 20:9-11 KJV
I will keep this brief, since I’m on my way out to church myself. Under the law the Sabbath was observed on the seventh day, or Saturday. Through the death and resurrection of Christ the law was fulfilled, and the early church then began observing the Lord’s day on the first day of the week, the day on which Jesus resurrected. This is why we go to church on Sunday and not on Saturday.
