According to the Bible, we are not bound to a weekly Sabbath. New Testament believers have found their rest (Sabbath) in Christ through the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:1-4, 38; John 3:1-8). This is the rest spoken of by Isaiah and the writer of Hebrews (Isaiah 28:9-12; Hebrews 4:1-11). A millennium of one thousand years will be the rest for the earth, the antitype of God resting on the seventh day (2 Peter 3:8; Revelation 20:1-6).

Neither is there a so-called Christian Sabbath to observe on the first day of the week as a replacement of the Jewish Sabbath on the seventh day of the week. Commandments, rules, and regulations of the Jewish seventh day do not apply to our first day of the week.

True Christians, whether Jews or Gentile, walk with God each day of the week. Their rest is in the Spirit of God, and they attend all day and night church services whenever possible.

As Christians, if we want to set aside a certain day of the week to worship, pray, study God’s Word, or do good deeds, the Bible grants us that liberty (Romans 14:5-6). Doing so does not make the day a holy day, Old Testament regulations do not apply to it, no certain day is required or excluded, and we should not impose this observance upon others as a necessary part of their salvation. We should assemble with other saints to worship on the day or night that our congregations designates.

In view of God’s Word, a Christian should count every day as holy. Wisdom dictates that we set aside a time of cessation from physical labor on the basis of God’s law of temperance. Workaholics are intemperate and this is unscriptural. Each of us needs physical rest and time to meditate, be with our family, be alone, pray, and read.

Honoring God with our soul, body, and spirit is His will for each of us. Using every day to glorify God should be our highest aim. Our age is repulsed by so-called Sunday Christians who live sinful lives six days a week, then go to church on Sunday and profess to be saved. We must live Christianity seven days per week, worshiping God any day or night we have an opportunity. Soon our pilgrimage will end and we will step into the eternal Sabbath where no night ever comes. Until then, we live for Him every day and every hour of our lives.
