Do we celebrate the sabbath on saturdays, sundays, or do we no longer do it at all?
Under inspiration, the apostle Paul answers: вЂњTherefore let no man judge you in eating and drinking or in respect of a festival or of an observance of the new moon or of a sabbath: for those things are a shadow of the things to come, but the reality belongs to the Christ.вЂќвЂ”Colossians 2:16,В 17.
Those inspired words suggest quite a change in GodвЂ™s requirements for his servants. Why the change? Because Christians are under a new law, вЂњthe law of the Christ.вЂќ (Galatians 6:2) The former Law covenant given through Moses to Israel came to an end when JesusвЂ™ death fulfilled it. (Romans 10:4: Ephesians 2:15) Did the commandment about keeping the Sabbath also come to an end? Yes. After saying that вЂњwe have been discharged from the Law,вЂќ Paul went on to refer to one of the Ten Commandments. (Romans 7:6,В 7) So the Ten CommandmentsвЂ”including the Sabbath lawвЂ”are part of the Law that came to an end. GodвЂ™s worshippers, therefore, are no longer required to observe a weekly Sabbath.
Not the gentiles
