How can I be sure that the Sabbath is the day of rest?


“How can I be sure that the Sabbath is the day of rest?”


This is a good question. A few verses on this subject should settle the question. “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”(Exodus 20:8-11)

“Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD.” (Exodus 31:15)
