You know by now that I stress to you to read my words, but go to your Bible to be sure
I’m telling you right. So let’s talk about Saturday and Sunday.
the days of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, God had a covenant with His Chosen, the Jewish people, and He was clear that they were
to observe the seventh day of the week…Saturday…as a day of rest, just as He had in His creation of the world.
When Jesus came as the Christ, we came under a new covenant, and a number of things changed. For example,
multiple wives became adultery, and He said such things as "For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall
cleave to his wife, and they twain shall be one flesh" (Matthew 19:5). And he said through the Apostle John, that hating
a person is as bad as murder (1st John 3:15). And that just wanting another man’s wife is adultery. "Whosoever
looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart" (Matthew 5:28).
And concerning the Sabbath, He also said, "The Sabbath was made for man; and not man for the Sabbath."
And He said, "if your ox is in the ditch on a Sabbath, won’t you get him out?" (Mark 14:5). And Paul reminded
that "One man esteemed one day above another; another esteemed every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his
own mind" (Romans 14:5).
I’m mentioning these just to show that Christ
brought a New Way, and we recognize the first day of the week…the day of His resurrection, Sunday…as our day
of worship. If a person wants to strain at a gnat and swallow a camel, (Matthew 23:24), Christ certainly won’t fault
anyone who wishes to use Saturday as a day of rest and Sunday as a day of worship. I’m sure many wives would like to
even add Sunday as a day of rest. I’ve always felt that a mother who gets four kids ready for church and Sunday School,
would praise the Lord for such a rule!
