Can A Christian Work On Saturday
This is a question that I hear often, but it can be especially pressing for those who are considering what is referred to as the “Blue Laws” or “Christian Sabbath”. In fact, this has become an issue in many countries as employers increasingly demand that employees work on Sundays rather than Saturday. This is a complex matter and I will attempt to provide you with some answers.
No, Christians should not work on Saturday.
There are several reasons why Christians should not work on Saturday. First, God is not a liar and He never changes His mind. The 7th day is the Sabbath and it is Saturday because that’s what it says in the book of Genesis were God defines it as such. “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made” (Genesis 2:2).
We must remember that when we believe in Christ, we believe in everything that was written by Moses and all of Scripture because these books were inspired by God Himself. If something isn’t written down clearly enough for us to understand then we should ask someone who knows more about these things than us or read further into the Bible until we find an answer to our question. In this case, I recommend going straight to Genesis 2:2 for answers instead of listening only half-heartedly when someone tells you about something without giving full credit where credit is due!
Because Saturday is the 7th day of the week.
Because the Sabbath is the 7th day of the week. This can be confusing for some people, because we typically think of Saturdays as being Sundays. But in fact, it is Saturday that is the Sabbath day when you consider that Sunday was originally part of Saturday:
In Exodus 20:8-11, God commands us to keep holy (or set apart) His covenant with us by celebrating a weekly time of rest and worship. He also tells us not to do any work or create any unnecessary burdens during this time, called Shabbat (Hebrew for “rest”). The Bible teaches that this commandment still applies today because Jesus said “the Son of Man has authority over seven days but no one has greater authority than God who rests on the seventh day” (Matthew 12:8).
This means there are two ways to look at your schedule each week:
- First see if there are any days where nothing is planned for you and/or your family members throughout the whole day; if so, then those will be your Sabbath days throughout every week until further notice from someone else higher up than yourself who may have different plans for their own families as well . . . . . . .
- Secondly see which specific days out from all those possibilities above would work best within your own personal needs such as having enough energy left after work each night before going home so that
The Bible says that God rested on the 7th day.
The Bible says that God created the world in six days, and then rested on the seventh. This is a very important point because it shows that God created a day of rest for people to enjoy. The Bible also says that this day was blessed by God, and was made for man.
When you work on Saturday, you are going against what God wants from you as a Christian because He has already given us a day where we can rest from our daily tasks and enjoy the blessings He has given us.
Therefore Sunday is not a special day like we have been taught to believe.
The Sabbath is the 7th day of the week.
It is not Sunday.
This is why we have been taught to think that Sunday should be a special day like Saturday was before God gave us His rest on the 7th day, which was not Sunday.
But if you think about it, when did God give His rest? He rested on a day that was not a special day for us because we do not know when it was or how long it lasted; however, He told us how long it would last if we follow His instructions and keep His commandments (see Deuteronomy 5:12-15). The Sabbath for Israel was Saturday until Jesus came into our lives through his death on Good Friday and resurrection on Easter morning after three days from Friday sunset to Monday sunrise.
The Sabbath is actually Saturday.
Some Christians believe that the Sabbath is Sunday. The problem with this view is that Saturday is the seventh day of creation and God rested on that day. Therefore, it can’t be any other day than Saturday! This means if you are a Christian working on Saturday, you are not keeping God’s law.
No, Christians should not work on Saturday
It is possible to work on Saturday, but it is not your day of rest. The Sabbath is Saturday, and the Bible tells us to rest on the 7th day. Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins, so we should take this time to reflect on his sacrifice and honor him with our actions while resting.
These are some of the ways that you can find blessings by handling your finances in a manner that is pleasing to God.
