By Pastor Daniel J Freedman,


As described in the book of Genesis, God rested on the seventh day of His creation, blessing and sanctifying that day, later calling it “Sabbath” to "remember." It is a day set aside to stop all work, and to rest just like God did.

A Seventh-day Adventist typically attends church on Sabbath to worship God as Creator and Provider of every good thing, and sets the day apart from the rest of the week by honoring Him through worship, fellowship with family and friends, and acts of kindness. The Sabbath is also a reminder that Jesus is our Redeemer. Since man cannot work for his salvation he must rest from all his labors, which includes his spiritual labors and must trust solely in the shed blood of Jesus for his salvation.

To a Seventh-day Adventist, keeping the Sabbath is a sign of obedience and faith in God.
