Pt 1 of the 4th Commandment – Ex 20:8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.” The Sabbath has the same outworking as the 1st Commandment, which is worship. When the people were told to rest on the seventh day of each week, it was to remain focused on God and His amazing work of creation, deliverance from Egyptian slavery, and rest from their work. Worship takes place when we are look to God and God alone in light of His greatness & glory..
The 4th commandment also is the commandment with the greatest controversy. Jesus created controversy at least six times in the New Testament record by acting opposite of what the interpretation of keeping the Sabbath holy was really speaking to. This sermon content is a great foundational study on the Fourth Commandment. Enjoy.
