Jesus, the Lord of the Sabbath
“The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.”
Jesus said that He is “the way and the truth and the life” (Jn 14:6) and told us to follow His example (Jn 13:15). Therefore, as Christians, we should strive to emulate Christ’s every act of faith, including worship. By following His footsteps, we can discover the true way of worship and receive God’s blessings. This is directly linked to a special day God blessed.
Which day of the week is the Sabbath?
Consequently, just as Christ and His disciples observed the Sabbath on Saturday, Christians today should do the same. For this reason, Jesus emphasized that the Sabbath Day should be kept until the end (Mt 24:20).
Christ’s life on earth serves as a guide for us to follow. The Sabbath Day is undoubtedly God’s will which we must observe to enter the kingdom of heaven (Mt 7:21).
The World Mission Society Church of God observes the Sabbath on Saturdays, following the example of Christ and the Early Church apostles. Please visit your local Church of God to study more about the Sabbath Day and keep it holy.
