The Grace Behind the Weekly Sabbath

SIGN OF SANCTIFICATION (I)

Besides being an emblem of a covenantal relationship, the Sabbath is also a sign of sanctification.

The weekly Sabbath is mentioned in Ezekiel’s description of worship during the messianic age (Ezek 46:1, 4, 12). Earlier on, the LORD had told him that the Sabbath was a sign between God and the people He sanctified (Ezek 20:12, 20). As a day sanctified from creation, the Sabbath has a sanctifying effect on those who keep it holy.

As Christians, we conduct ourselves uprightly in our daily lives, choosing good and eschewing evil. Sabbath-keeping sharpens our senses in that our choices are not merely between good and evil but between sacred and secular.

Keeping the Sabbath holy is to free it from mundane work; we order our lives each week, planning ahead to complete our mundane tasks in six days:

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work.” (Ex 20:8, 9)

Thus, Sabbath is consecrated, separated for a holy purpose, without any distracting chore from the household or workplace occupying its sacred hours.
