The fourth Commandment: Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy

1. God's activity in creation set the pattern for our cycle of weekly activity. Gen 2:1-3, Ex 20:8-11

 

2. The Sabbath is a constant reminder that we have been redeemed by God. Dt 5:15, Is 58: 13-14, Amos 8:4-6

 

3. Jesus is God's Sabbath in creation and redemption. Mk 2:23-27, John 1:1-3, Mt 11:28-30, Mt 12:1-4, 5, 11-12

 

4. Christians gather for corporate worship on the first day of the week to receive from the hand of the of the resurrected Christ what we cannot get on any other day or in any other way. Rev 1:10, 1 Cor 16:2
