The Blessing of The Sabbath

THE commandment to keep the Sabbath holy (Deuteronomy 5:12) did not mean that the other days of the week and their activities were unholy. The Sabbath was to remind Israel that human beings were dependent on God, and that they have strong tendencies to exalt themselves and their accomplishments, to turn them into gods even—to borrow an OT expression. In today’s terms, we might say that our pursuits become addictions. The Sabbath enforced a day of rest and worship in the weekly cycle to keep their focus on the Lord rather than on themselves and their accomplishments. Sunday, as the Lord’s Day, can help Christians set boundaries on who and what we worship and make the god of our lives.
