Lesson 6 | Observing the Sabbath

The Sabbath is different. On Sabbath, we put aside all the activities that preoccupy us throughout the week and focus on our relationships with God and other people. At first, one will need to make special effort to adapt oneself to this new and unfamiliar routine. There are not necessarily hard and fast rules, but there are principles. We can find them taught in both the Old Testament and in New Testament accounts of Jesus’ and His disciples’ activities on this special day.
