How is the Sabbath a Sign of Loyalty?

God’s Loyalty to Us 

God celebrated the very first Sabbath with Adam and Eve as a sign of their origin and His love for them. The Sabbath day was evidence of His loyalty to them. It continues to be a sign of His love for us as our Creator and Redeemer. 

Our Loyalty to God

Sadly, humanity has betrayed our loyalty to God over again and again. No one has been loyal to God except one man, Jesus Christ.

There is no longer a tree of knowledge of good and evil to test our loyalty as there was for Adam and Eve . Instead, we have a different test of loyalty. Jesus said, “If you love Me, keep My commandments,” (John 14:15) and the apostle John later stated, “By this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments” (1 John 2:3). This includes the fourth commandment to “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8).

Many Christians dismiss the seventh-day Sabbath as being unimportant or no longer binding. Others are ignorant of its true importance. The Bible tells us that as we near the second coming, God’s people will “keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus” (Revelation 14:12). The one commandment that has been disregarded by the vast majority of Christians will be the final test of loyalty. (We’ll explore this more in upcoming issues.) 


Experiencing The Blessing

From the beginning God set apart the seventh-day Sabbath as a special time of rest and fellowship. What is the heart of true Sabbath keeping and how do we honor God’s holy day? The Bible has the answers!
