The Grace Behind the Weekly Sabbath

COVENANT OF GRACE (I)

There are those who are wont to differentiate between “Sabbath of law” and “Sabbath of grace.” This would be analogous to saying there is atonement of law and atonement of grace, but we know atonement is by grace, not law.

To be biblically sound, we should say that the Sabbath is a grace enjoyed even by those under the law, just as atonement is through Christ alone but available to those under the law (Heb 9:15).

The difference is, Sabbath observed under the law involves sacrifices and Mosaic legalities, which have been abolished through the cross (Col 2:14). What remains is grace, the basis of our covenantal relationship with God.

What does the Sabbath have to do with grace? According to the Torah, the weekly Sabbath is a double celebration of creation (Ex 20:11) and deliverance ( Deut 5:15). In Christ, we are a new creation (2 Cor 5:17), redeemed from the bondage of sin (Jn 8:34-36; Rom 6:14), so the Sabbath is elevated to a higher, spiritual plane—a celebration of our salvation, our new birth.
