Saturday, the Worship Day of God
God commanded us to keep the Sabbath Day. While it is a day of rest, it is first and foremost a day to commemorate God who created the heavens and earth. So, as God’s people, it is an essential part of our faith to observe it. God set this day aside for us and made it one of the Ten Commandments to ensure that we remember it.
“‘Remember to observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.’”
Exodus 20:8 (NLT)
All Christians are familiar with the Ten Commandments. However, not many Christians throughout the world observe or realize the importance of observing the fourth commandment according to the teachings of Christ.
Christians observed the Sabbath Day as God commanded from the time of Christ until A.D. 321. At that time, Roman Emperor Constantine outlawed worship on Saturday and forced people to worship on Sunday. However, Jesus taught that the seventh-day Sabbath must be kept even until the end of the age (Mt 24:20).
The World Mission Society Church of God keeps the seventh-day Sabbath holy, just as Jesus and the disciples did, to receive God’s promises of rest and blessings.
