Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
God created the Heavens and the Earth in six days and He rested to enjoy His creation on the Seventh. He set aside this as a day of rest and a Holy day to Him.
Jesus made the statement that the sabbath was made for man and that man was not made for the sabbath. As a part of the Jewish Law man could only do so much on the Sabbath or he was guilty of breaking the law.
The early church met, not on the sabbath, or seventh day of the week but on the first day of the week which became known as the Lord's day.
We are Christians every day of the week and while we are not under the law we should honor God each day with our lives. We should strive our best to honor Him and to keep our lives and our actions Holy.
