The Sabbath day has always been a day that you keep holy. This will never change. But, I always thought that you were supposed to rest, relax, and not work. It is a day for God, for worship and prayer. But in the bible, there is a story in Matthew where the Pharisees see Jesus and His disciples out picking food to eat, because they were hungry. The Pharisees automatically call Jesus on sinning, because you are not supposed to work in the fields on the Sabbath day. Jesus told them, however, that He is keeping the law, but that they have added their own traditions to it, which He often rebuked them for. (Matthew 5:43 and 15:6). Deeds of mercy and necessity are permitted on the old testament Sabbath day. Jesus and His disciples were not harvesting the crops, but merely eating handfuls of it as they passed through, because they were hungry, and food is a NECESSITY to live. Further Jesus said, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” (Mark 2:27). He also says “The Son of Man is the Lord of the Sabbath.” (Matthew 12:8). We are the Lords of the Sabbath, we can decide what we do on that day, as long as it is good or of God, merciful, or a necessity. We must keep it holy, other than that, God gives us the freedom to choose how to keep it holy. The story of the lamb getting stuck in the hole was how Jesus told people that they should lift it out. This is when He says that we may do good on the Sabbath, even if it requires work, like lifting out a sheep. If it is good, therefor of God, we can do it. Matthew 12:7 says we should understand what, “I desire mercy, not sacrifice” means. Jesus is our sacrifice, so God no longer wants sacrifice from us, but mercy towards others, to show innocence towards them, not condemnation. He wants to show us mercy, and us to show others mercy because He lives inside us, we are one with Him. This is so awesome, God wants us to understand that we are supposed to be Jesus, because Jesus literally lives in us, so how can we not be Him. If we reject Him, then we cannot be Him. So, just accept Jesus fully, and enjoy the presence of the creator of everything.
