Thank you Jayme,
God is so good. He has not left us to stumble around wondering how to live. He has given us His Word and His Spirit to guide us. God bless you Jayme.
Yours in Christ,

Another superb effort Robert, as always. I believe that you have been making these choices daily because I have known you for some time and there are few men like you who desire to know God in a deeper way and to seek His holiness in your life. I see it in your words and see it in your life brother. Outstanding, as always my friend.

Thanks Jack,
I have had some experiences where I did not trust God, so I know where that can lead. I never want to think that I can do it without Him again. God bless you, brother.
Yours in Christ,
Robert

What about Jesus teaching of the 4th Commandment as it appears to be the highlight of our true love and obedience to God the creator? Why do we worship on Sunday and some on Saturday? Ancient history revealed the changes made to the day we are to worship Christian God to the Pagan God, if the keeping of Sabbath is significant to the teachings of Christ and the salvation of mankind is through Him (Son of God) if we believe, on what day should I keep the Sabbath holy then? Or should I just worship God any day I like and delude myself into believing I’m doing or following Jesus teachings and examples?

Hi Mia,

Thanks for reading and commenting. Let me attempt to address your concerns about the Sabbath. This won’t be an exhaustive treatment of the idea of the Sabbath, but I hope it will help.

The Pharisees overemphasized the letter of the Law while missing the intent completely. When they attempted to trap Jesus with their interpretation of what ‘keeping the Sabbath’ meant, He told them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath” (Mark 2:27 ESV). The Jewish Sabbath was actually Saturday, and some believers still gather for worship on Saturday. There is nothing wrong with that. The Apostle Paul wrote, “One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord” (Romans 14:5-6 ESV). Most Christians worship corporately on Sunday because that is the day of Jesus’ resurrection.

Your wrote in your comment: “Ancient history revealed the changes made to the day we are to worship Christian God to the Pagan God, if the keeping of Sabbath is significant to the teachings of Christ and the salvation of mankind is through Him (Son of God) if we believe, on what day should I keep the Sabbath holy then?”
I’m not sure I understand what you mean by this paragraph, can you elaborate a bit on it, please?

You asked if you should just worship God any day you like. The believer should be worshiping God every day, all day. Our lives should be lived out in worship of God. Too many people separate their spiritual lives from their secular lives. Too many people worship one day a week, with the other six devoted to other pursuits. However, even the everyday tasks should be done to the glory of God.

As far as the idea that the 4th Commandment is “the highlight of our true love and obedience to God the creator”, this seems to be a bit misguided. Jesus said, when He was asked what was the greatest commandment, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39 ESV). Jesus is telling us that, if we make this our overarching motivation (to love God, then love others) we will be living as He intends for us to live.

I hope this helps, Mia. Feel free to comment back and we can discuss it further. God bless you, and I will be praying that God gives you a peace about this.

Yours in Christ,
Robert
