A Day of Remembrance

On the Sabbath day, we are to remember God's mighty work of Creation, as well as that he made the seventh day Holy. Therefore, this weekly day of rest is a time for us to remember our origin. We are from God, and he made us to be like him. With this in mind, we can live another week with obedience to God's Word.

When commanding the Israelites to keep the Sabbath day, God also asked the people to remember how God delivered them from the slavery in Egypt. "Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day" (Deuteronomy NIV).

Likewise, God has also delivered us, the believers, from the sinful lifestyle under the hands of Satan into the promise of God's eternal kingdom.

Through the Sabbath, God furthermore reminded the Israelites that they belonged to God. "Moreover I gave them my sabbaths, as a sign between me and them, that they might know that I the LORD sanctify them" (Ezekiel ). The Sabbath is God's way of telling us how special we are--that we are his people.
