Very nice article Dr. Williams. I know every time I hear the argument about which day the Sabbath is on, Saturday or Sunday, it only makes me think about how the Pharisees’ attitude toward Jesus was. Legalistic and ritualistic.

Thanks for the comment Tony. The Sabbath is on Christ! Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift.

That was a big subject for such a small space. I loved it, esp this summary:

“By resting in Him, He feeds us, He restores us, He delivers us, He cares for us, He gives us sight, and He frees us from the bondage of the law and sin. Romans 14:4-23 tells us it is not the day of the week we worship or foods we eat that makes us right before God. It was by faith in what God said that makes us right. Anything, even the day we set aside to worship, is sin if we make the focus the day and not God or others (Romans 14:6).”

Well said,

Thanks for the comment DocReits. When we rest in Him we can look forward to knowing that one day He will complete His work in us. Thank you Jesus.

I’ve recently got into a civil debate with a Seventh Day Adventist and another man who vehemently rebuked any church that did not keep the Sabbath on Saturday. I even linked this article for them to read, yet, all their arguments seems so legalistic. I’m almost drained by the experience, but I stood my ground that it did not matter which day you worshiped on but don’t damn the ones who do on Sunday.
Every day is the Lord’s day, and praise be to him!

Mr. Reese…I give you credit for trying. I have tried with them to. http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/should-the-sabbath-be-on-saturday-or-sunday/ For one thing, every time the commands are given to Gentiles? No, Every place it gives this command it is: “Say to the Israelites, ‘You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the LORD, who makes you holy” (Ex 31:13 and elsewhere). Are they Israelites? Then they should keep it if they feel like it but we are never commanded, not even one time in the New Testament, to observe the Sabbath. If they want to keep the Sabbath law then do the allow stoning of those who refuse to? that’s what the Law says! They can’t travel more than 40 yards, light a fire, tie their shoes, and check these out:

•writing, erasing, and tearing;
•business transactions;
•driving or riding in cars or other vehicles;
•using the telephone;
•turning on or off anything which uses electricity, including lights, radios, television, computer, air-conditioners and alarm clocks;
•cooking, baking or kindling a fire;
•gardening and grass-mowing;
•doing laundry;

I believe you will never convince them. They are trying to do works as part of their salvation which robs God of glory for Christ’ work on the cross. Jesus said at the time He was dying “Te tellis ti” or something like that where He said “It is finished” or some translations say “It is accomplished” and in the Greek it renders “Paid in full” essentially.

AMEN: Co 2:8 Beware that no one carries you off as spoil through his philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ; This deception of the law before t”the cross” has roobed the church of the fillness of OUR authority to walk in the fullness of OUR Lord
