In the same way, the Sabbath is a symbol of our loyalty to God. All of the Ten Commandments make sense and should be followed. Even non-Christians believe that people shouldn’t steal or kill or lie. Almost everyone observes nine of God’s Ten Commandments. But only a few
keep the fourth commandment.
    Of what value, then, is the fourth commandment: “Remember the Sabbath day”? It shows unquestioned loyalty to God.
    Researchers have learned that humans function best when they take one day in seven to rest and relax. But why the seventh day specifically? Only because God says so. We obey because God is a personal Friend in whom we can fully trust. And that’s all the logic His true followers need.
    Jesus kept the Sabbath (see Luke 4:16). He set an example for His followers.
