    How will you observe a Sabbath this week?

    Observing the Sabbath (Sunday, actually) is probably one of my weakest points. I usually play computer games, but that's because my wife likes to watch TV. I suppose I should be stronger, and suggest family activities that build. I usually don't follow any sports, so that isn't a problem. However, when there is international soccer going on, and my wife's home country is involved, I have to watch it with her, even on Sunday.

    I hope someone will tell me, "Well, if that's your worst sin, then...."

      All sins are to be avoided, from the worst to the least.  Only one is unforgivable:  blashpemy against the Holy Ghost.  Repent and move forward on your self-described "weakest points."

    Demas you know me for a few years now. I can be perceive as irreverent. Such are my thoughts on the Sabbath. God is omnipresent and omnipotent -- that very clearly shows us that God is not time sensitive. Great with the Genesis stuff and the Jewish rites of tradition. But really. Aren't Gods law for the benefit of man, like that whole pulling your donkey out of the pit of mud deal. (or something like that that Jesus referenced when healing on the "Sabbath".)

    Monday, Thursday or Saturday to set aside to rest, meaning with your Lord not in bed all day long.
    In my home we practice the Sabbath for a bit every day. A time of quiet with no issues being addressed or work to be done, even if just for moments. We do Sunday as the Sabbath but quite often I write sermons and my wife does some work. But I think on those days we still relax and give glory to God, and that rests our souls and our souls need a whole lot more rest than our bodies and mind.
    I say cure the sick on the Sabbath maybe the energy you receive could be worth more than rest.

    GOD SAID in Hebrews 10:1 "For the law having "a shadow of good things to come," and not the very image of the things..." tells us that GOD "commanded" the Israelites to "rest" on the Day of Sabbath under the Old Covenant (Exodus 34:21) but "was a shadow of things to come" under the New Covenant!

    However, GOD made a New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:33) with "Better Promises" (Hebrews 8:6) under which "sacrifices (Sabbath) and offerings" HE has "no pleasure" (Hebrews 10:6)! 

    The Sabbath was given for "A" day" of "rest" under the Old Covenant but under the New Covenant, our "days of rest" never ends! 

    GOD SAID in Hebrews 4:11 "Let us therefore, labor to enter into that "rest" (Sabbath), lest any man fall after the sample of "unbelief." 

    GOD SAID in Colossians 2:16-17 "Let no man judge respect of an holyday,...or of the Sabbath days: Which are "a shadow of things to come;" but the body is of Christ." 

    Did you notice the "s" on "days" in Colossians 2:16?  Did you notice in verse 17 the Sabbath days were "a shadow of things to come" which is "the body of Christ?"  Did HE not come?  Did HE not make "Better Promises" (Hebrews 8:6) under the New Covenant? 

    GOD SAID in Hebrews 9-11 "But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building."

    GOD SAID in Hebrews 4:9-11 of the Old Covenant's "rest" (aka Sabbath Day) that under the New Covenant which has "Better Promises;" "There remaineth therefore a "rest" to the people of GOD. For he that is entered into HIS "rest," he also hath ceased from "his own works," as GOD did from HIS. Let us labor therefore to enter into "THAT REST," lest any man fall after the same example of UNBELIEF." 

    Therefore, our "rest" (Sabbath Days) are EVERYDAY "IF" we BELIEVE and HAVE "FAITH" in HIS WORD (Psalm 23)!   

    GOD SAID "Let no man judge you in respect of the Sabbath "days" for under the New Covenant ANYDAY and EVERYDAY is "rest" (aka Sabbath Days) when we BELIEVE and rely TOTALLY on HIM and HIS "Better Promises" under the New Covenant!

    In other words, "Give up self ("your works") and rely TOTALLY on GOD (aka WORD) to "enter into "THAT REST" (aka Sabbath)!

    But how can one know of HIS "Better Promises" if they don't "STUDY" (II Timothy 2:15)?
