Sabbath Day.


Jewish people observe the Sabbath Day on Saturday.

This is the last day of the week.
It represents the last day of creation on which God rested.

Therefore one was not to work on the Sabbath Day.

It was consecrated to God and His concerns.

Christians Holy Day is Sunday.

This is the third day after Jesus was crucified - the day on which he was resurrected.

So the observance of Sabbath practice was transferred to Sunday.

What does this mean?

We are not to work on Sunday.
It is reserved for rest and the contemplation of God which includes worship.

We are to observe the Sabbath Day.
