Sabbath: “Come to Me. . .”

Cover picture for the article“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”. What a wonderful promise we have been given here by Jesus. After all, who among us at times hasn’t felt heavy-laden, if not so much with work itself (though that can often be the case) but with the labor and heavy-ladenness that life itself brings? And Jesus here is telling us that, yes, He knows what we are going through, and yes, He can help us — that is, if we let Him.

"Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy" is one of the Ten Commandments found in the Hebrew Bible. The full text of the commandment reads: Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. There's no chance of God's holy sabbath day anywhere in the old and new testament of the bible. Sunday was another work day in the Roman Empire. On March 7, 321, however, Roman Emperor Constantine I issued a civil decree making Sunday a day of rest from labor, stating: All judges and city people and the craftsmen shall rest upon the venerable day of the sun.

Very few Christians realize this huge Truth. The Sabbath, which was brought forth originally for man, is no longer a day of the week. Not Saturday nor Sunday. How could it be, since man has messed with the calendar. To get back on track we would needs to begin with the Spring Equinox. But though we cannot judge others by the days, or food, or marriage, there is good news; Jesus has become our Sabbath for all times. Yes, we can rest in Him always, seven days a week.
