The Grace Behind the Weekly Sabbath

Preface

The weekly Sabbath is quite a misunderstood subject that is attended by diverse and conflicting opinions and practices.

Some reckon that the Sabbath is of the law and not binding on Christians, who now observe instead “the Lord’s Day” to commemorate Christ’s resurrection. Others see the fourth commandment as binding but that the Christian Sabbath is now on Sunday.

A seemingly less legalistic approach is to rest one day in seven, so any day can be a self-proclaimed Sabbath according to one’s convenience.

Similar to this contingent Sabbath concept is to coincide the weekly worship with the official rest-day of the geo-political locality—so it is Sunday for most of the world, Friday for Arab or Muslim countries, and Saturday by default for those living in Israel.

How should a Christian who is serious about the word of God, seeking to please Him in all things, respond to all this?

In Mark’s Gospel, Jesus’ statement, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath (Mk 2:27),” is often quoted by proponents of a lax attitude towards the Sabbath, but few bother to explain the phrase “made for man.”

Besides noting that man is not to be burdened and fettered by rabbinic excesses with regard to the Sabbath, do we know what God intended “for man” by setting aside a special day each week for him?
