What is one of the best elements about Christmas, aside from the obvious of Jesus’ birth? The presents? The tree? The food? Nope! For me, it’s the music!
I love all the Christmas music. …

Remember the Sabbath..Does That Mean On Sunday You Can’t Do Anything?

I was wondering about one of the 10 commandments, the one that says remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Well does that mean on Sunday you can’t do anything? You just need to relax and not do any work? And also is it considered a sin if you do work, or not relax on that day of the week?

Trophy of Grace replies…

Very good questions sister! A Christian can make any day of the week their Sabbath. It does not necessarily have to be on Sunday and it is not a sin if you do have to work on Sundays.

For insistence my pastor has service on Saturday nights and three services on Sundays so neither of those can be his Sabbath because he is working. If I remember correctly I believe he makes Mondays his Sabbath. He spends time alone in God’s presence and relaxes on that day. But we are free to choose any day that fits our schedule. Often time’s people do choose Sunday because they don’t have to work. They may go to church and then have family time like our family does on most Sundays.

Romans 14:5-6 says,

“In the same way, some think one day is more holy than another day, while others think every day is alike. You should each be fully convinced that whichever day you choose is acceptable. Those who worship the Lord on a special day do it to honor him. Those who eat any kind of food do so to honor the Lord, since they give thanks to God before eating. And those who refuse to eat certain foods also want to please the Lord and give thanks to God.”

Colossians 2:16-17 says,

“So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths. For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ himself is that reality.”

The Sabbath was made to meet our need to rest from work and our daily activities. It’s a day for us to replenish our minds and bodies so that we are ready for work the rest of the week. It’s a way of worshipping God. Thanking Him for the opportunities that He has given us with our jobs and ministries, acknowledging Him as our provider. It’s during these days that we should have times of worship and study. This is a good time to just sit at His feet. There’s so many ways to do this. We can go out to a park and look at His creation and praise Him. Hang out with the family and just appreciate how God has blessed us with them. Go to a private place and get on your face before Him. It’s up to each of us to decide and to be lead by the Holy Spirit how we spend our time on our day of rest.

Whatever you do don’t allow yourself to get all religious about it. A religious mentality will still your joy. Just take a day of the week and rest from your normal routine. Take to time to reflect on God’s goodness and thank Him for everything that He is doing in your life.

The religious Pharisees in Jesus day got really crazy with what they could and couldn’t do on the Sabbath and they had no peace or joy and they went around stealing everyone else’s. They made up their own rules of do’s and don’ts to do on the Sabbath. They complicated things for themselves and everyone else. They wouldn’t even help someone on the Sabbath. They told them that they could get healed the other six days of the week but not on that day.

Here’s the story..

Luke 13:10-17

And He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11 And there was a woman who for eighteen years had had a sickness caused by a spirit; and she was bent double, and could not straighten up at all. 12 When Jesus saw her, He called her over and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your sickness.” 13 And He laid His hands on her; and immediately she was made erect again and began glorifying God. 14 But the synagogue official, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, began saying to the crowd in response, “There are six days in which work should be done; so come during them and get healed, and not on the Sabbath day.” 15 But the Lord answered him and said, “You hypocrites, does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the stall and lead him away to water him? 16 “And this woman, a daughter of Abraham as she is, whom Satan has bound for eighteen long years, should she not have been released from this bond on the Sabbath day?” 17 As He said this, all His opponents were being humiliated; and the entire crowd was rejoicing over all the glorious things being done by Him.

They also criticized Him for healing a man’s withered arm on the Sabbath. (Mark 3)

It is very obvious that Jesus did not care about all the rules and regulations that came from the traditions of men. He did the will of His Father, our Father every day of the week. Let us follow His example.

Paul said in Galatians 4:9-12 “So now that you know God (or should I say, now that God knows you), why do you want to go back again and become slaves once more to the weak and useless spiritual principles of this world? 10 You are trying to earn favor with God by observing certain days or months or seasons or years. 11 I fear for you. Perhaps all my hard work with you was for nothing. 12 Dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to live as I do in freedom from these things, for I have become like you Gentiles—free from those laws.”

Mark 2:27-28 says,

Then Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made to meet the needs of people, and NOT people to meet the requirements of the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord, even over the Sabbath!”

We need a day of Sabbath or rest for our good. Enjoy that day sister. Rest in the Lord and be replenished.

Sincerely,

Trophy of Grace
