Many people are confused by the fourth of the ten commandments,“Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8). By going to church on Sunday, some people think they are obeying this command. But that is not the case. The ten commandments are a part of the Old Testament given to the Jews prior to Christ’s death on the cross (Luke 16:16). Jesus’ death terminated the Old Testament and established the New Testament, which is for us today (Matthew 26:28; Hebrews 9:14-26, 10:9-10; Colossians 2:10-17; 2 Corinthians 3:3-14).
The Sabbath isn’t part of the law of Christ, and you can’t keep as law that which isn’t the law of God (Romans 4:15). Also, the Sabbath was the seventh day of the week (Saturday). On that day, travel and cooking restrictions were in place, with anyone caught working on the Sabbath being put to death (Exodus 20:11, 31:12-18, 16:22-30).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
