Keeping The Sabbath Or Resting In Christ? – Hebrews 4:9

God established the Sabbath as a day of rest or “ceasing” from labor and works, and there is a message in this!

Many use this as a day of worship, generally on the “seventh day” or Saturday, while some Christians refer to it as Sunday. However, the Sabbath was not implemented as a day of worship but as a day of rest and for a specific reason.

Hebrews 4:9 further explains that the purpose of the Sabbath was to point to the finished work of Christ. This fact means that believers in Christ no longer have to work, toil, or labor under the Mosaic Law in efforts to make themselves right with God. Christ makes us right with God, therefore we “cease” to work and labor under the law trying to become right with God, this is why He and He alone is our Sabbath.
