Why Do We Worship on Sabbath (Saturday)?
The beneficent Creator, after the six days of Creation, rested on the seventh day and instituted the Sabbath ( Gen. 2:1-3 ) for all people as a memorial of Creation. The fourth commandment ( Exodus 20:8-11 ) of God’s unchangeable law requires the observance of this seventh-day Sabbath as the day of rest, worship, and ministry in harmony with the teaching and practice of Jesus, the Lord of the Sabbath.
The Sabbath is a day of delightful communion with God and one another. It is a symbol of our redemption in Christ, a sign of our sanctification, a token of our allegiance, and a foretaste of our eternal future in God’s kingdom. (Gen. 2:1-3 Exodus 20:8-11 Luke 4:16 Isa. 56:5,6 Isa. 58:13,14 Matthew 12:1-12 Exodus 31:13-17 Ezekiel 20:12,20 Deuteronomy 5:12-15 Heb. 4:1-11 Lev. 23:32 Mark 1:32 ).
The Sabbath is God’s perpetual sign of His eternal covenant between Him and His people. Joyful observance of this holy time from evening to evening, sunset to sunset, is a celebration of God’s creative and redemptive acts.
