The Sabbath Day
“By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all his work of creating that he had done.”
The above is a scripture that so many Christians today totally disregard. God is telling us that we should pull one day out of our busy schedules each week to reflect and recover from the busy schedules each of us has gotten ourselves and our families into. This is a day I believe that God wants us to worship him and honor him. I can remember as I grew up that my grandfather and grandmother would never allow any of our family to do any work. The day was regarded as the Sabbath day and even though they were farmers they did not do any farm work on Sunday, but regarded this as a day of rest. There are many references in the Bible about observing the Sabbath day and keeping it Holy. It was a day of worship and was a day that they used to recover from their hard work during the week. My grandfather always said that Sunday was God’s day and was a day that needed to be respected as such. Sunday has evolved in our society today as just any other day for so many Christians. Most people now go to church on Sunday morning and spend Sunday afternoon working as hard as they do during the week. I believe this is not what God would want us to be doing. Sunday should be a day of rest and relaxation and time to worship God. Christians should take this day to worship and respect God.
