It’s easy to dismiss Sabbath observance as old-fashioned or culturally irrelevant. Without a conviction that God Himself has set the Lord’s Day apart from every other, we are likely to disregard its significance or fall into externalism. In this message on the Fourth Commandment, Alistair Begg describes the importance of recognizing one day in seven as God’s provision for our benefit.
Many of us give little thought to how we spend the Lord’s Day. In fact, any attempt at maintaining the sanctity of the Sabbath is often seen as nothing more than religious legalism. So what are we to do with this day of rest? In these studies, Alistair Begg helps us examine the contemporary Christian Sabbath and consider the possibility that our theology has been replaced with expediency in regard to this issue. If we cannot disregard the other commandments, then we cannot ignore the fourth either. Rather, we must humbly accept God's design in providing the Sabbath as a gift that provides benefits when we approach it out of conviction and obedience to God.
