A Sabbath Keeping Remains (Hebrews 4:5-11)

Jason Roddy, May 11, 2014
Part of the Exposition of Hebrews series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Some have attempted to apply the saving grace though Jesus Christ as a means to abolish the Sabbath, even when Jesus himself has told us otherwise.

Jesus said in Matthew 5:17, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”

God's commandment to keep the Sabbath cannot be tossed out; nor any of His other nine commandments!

Thankfully, our salvation does not depend upon perfect compliance through human effort, (no person can ever keep the law perfectly; the condemnation of the law has been removed through the saving work of Jesus Christ) however, that does not give permission to remove one of God's commandments.

Heaven forbid that we should ever attempt to change what God has written; to erase one of His commandments because of the great gift of our Saviour is a sensual and fleshly thought that does not belong in the hearts of believers.

We should all the more be looking forward to the holy day that's been set apart to honor our Lord together - not discard it out of convenience or misunderstanding the eternal blessing that has been given to us to worship and enjoy God.

Hebrews 4:5-11

5And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. 6Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: 7Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. 8For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 9There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 10For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. (KJV)
