Can I observe the Sabbath any day of the week?
➠ The Bible never says, “Choose one day out of seven as a Sabbath day and observe it.”
➠ The day (7th day) itself is a holy day and God especially blessed this day. God has set this day aside to be a day of rest (Gen 2:1-3).
➠ God was very specific about exactly which day the Sabbath was. In Exodus 16:23, God said, “Tomorrow is to be a day of rest, a holy Sabbath to the Lord” (italics added). And in verse 26 Moses explains that the seventh day (not any other day) is the Sabbath day. The same clarity and explicitness are also expressed in the Ten Commandments (Ex 20:9-11; Deut 5:12-14).
➠ We must do what God has commanded us, not what we feel is the best choice (see 1Sam 15:22).
➠ Rom 14:4-6 and Gal 4:10-11 do not refer to the weekly Sabbath day but to the observance of special days. The context of Romans 14 shows that Paul was talking about Mosaic regulations on days and food (see v. 2: refrain from meat). Gal 4:10-11 is even clearer in that it refers to observance of special occasions prescribed in Old Testament regulations.
