It commands us to remember and keep the seventh day as holy, and to refrain from our work and rest. The Sabbath commandment is often overlooked. And even among those who do give it some thought, it is misunderstood. Many people don't know that it is the seventh day, Saturday, that is the Sabbath, not Sunday. In fact, many are surprised to learn this, having traditionally observed Sunday as Sabbath in the way God asks us to, without thinking to question it.
Obedience and the Layman
The truth of the Sabbath is strongly suggested in the accounts of Luke and John 31 of Jesus' crucifixion. The Saturday Sabbath was kept in Old Testament times. Jesus observed the Sabbath while on earth. It was kept in the New Testament, new covenant Christian times. The disciples kept it as such until they died many years later.
The New Testament authors give no hint in their writings that the Sabbath day had been changed. But there is more to the story. The truth of the Bible is testified to by the fulfilment of its many prophecies. One prophecy, also fulfilled, is found in Daniel Over the past years, many devoted Christians have been unwittingly misled in this respect, accepting a tradition perpetuated by their perhaps well-meaning leaders.
But God cannot accept man-made, insubordinate changes to His commands. This is made clear at the very beginning of human history when He rejected the worship offering of Cain, who chose his own alternative to the sacrificial lamb, and brought an offering of fruit instead. We glorify and worship God because we love Him and because He gives us salvation freely.

This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
He will give you many children and numerous livestock, and he will cause your fields to produce abundant harvests, for the Lord will again delight in being good to you as he was to your ancestors. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.

Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit. They should be obedient, always ready to do what is good. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide.
As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right just, righteous , because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.
