Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.
When I read these verses, it helps me to see how difficult and confusing it must have been to sort out rules and laws in the young Christian church. We still have disagreements today, 2000 years later! The Sabbath, it seems, is a time to honor God for all He has done and is doing in our lives. What better way to honor Him than to love our neighbor! I am going to start thinking of Sunday as a day reserved for Godly work and not earthly work.
Holy Lord, I believe you meant for Sabbath to be special. Help me to learn to keep the Sabbath for you, and if there is work to be done, let it be Godly work. Amen
