According to the Scripture in Genesis 2:1-3, God created the Sabbath at the end of Creation week. He took the seventh day, rested on it, blessed it, and sanctified it. The Sabbath is not something separate from the day, but it is the day itself – the seventh day.
The Sabbath is not an institution; it is the specific day that God blessed and made holy. The Sabbath cannot be separated from the seventh day, and the seventh day cannot be separated from the Sabbath. They are one and the same. The Sabbath is always the seventh day of the week.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the creator of the Sabbath, just as He is the creator of the Christian faith. He brought the world into existence in six days and rested on the seventh day, blessing it and making it holy. Jesus is the one through whom all things were created, and He made the Sabbath for the entire human race, not just for one nation.
The Sabbath is a gift from God to humanity, designed for rest and worship. It is a reminder of God’s creative power and His desire for us to find rest in Him. As followers of Christ, we honor the Sabbath by observing the seventh day as a day of rest and dedicating it to worshiping God.
