The Bible’s Sabbath day can be a complicated topic to explain. We must first make a distinction, the Jewish Sabbath day is today’s Saturday, though after Christ’s resurrection, many Christians wanted the day of rest to be Sunday. Anyway, God’s people are to keep the Sabbath holy, but does this forbid people from doing Sabbath work? We can get a hint from Jesus’s words in Mark 2:27, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. The Son of Man is Lord even over the Sabbath.”
The Sabbath is a day for people to rest and refresh themselves, however, how we do this is between us and God. There are also practical con
straints in keeping the Sabbath. For example, if we want electricity on Sunday, some people need to spend the day running power plants, or as Dusty mentioned in his sermon, if we’d like to eat out after church, restaurants need Sunday waiters. We also can’t let the fact that it's Sunday make us rest so much that we can’t do good for other people.
