Thought For the Day

The Ten Commandments are not multiple choice :)

Ok I’ll bite….

I have been saving this for an article but….

The followers of Jesus do not have to “keep the Sabbath”:

16 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. 17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. 18 Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such people also go into great detail about what they have seen, and their unspiritual minds puff them up with idle notions. 19 They have lost connection with the head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.

20 Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: 21 "Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!"? 22 These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. 23 Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.
- - Colossians 2:16-23 TNIV

The Sabbath was just a “shadow” the reality, the true rest is in Jesus….

Nobody can get to heaven thru following the commandments, as it is impossible to do it properly, all have sinned. The law is arrows and a tutor pointing us towards Jesus and His grace…
