If we’re honest, breaking the Fourth Commandment is one we might be not feel as bad about as breaking the other nine. Certainly, if you kill, commit adultery, or make a carved image, you should and usually do feel guilty. But, at least by today’s standards, breaking the Fourth Commandment — keeping the Sabbath — doesn’t usually require a trip to your local psychologist.

Yet breaking this commandment does produce stress in your life, because the whole commandment relates to our work. Work is stressful; we absolutely lean on work to provide for our needs. For some of us, we find our identity and pride in work alone. Thus, work remains one of the highest stressors in the average person’s life.

The Fourth Commandment provides a “why” and a “what” to those who fear God. The “why” is practical because we all need physical rest. The why is also practical because we need to refocus on the God of the Bible — the one true God. We need to reset and refocus because we, indeed, have short-term memories to the things of God. In the midst of family, work and life, we forget what God has called us to do (glorify Him), what our mission is (become more like Christ and share the Gospel with others), and what the point of it all is (to bring praise to God’s name).

  • Nowhere in the Bible are we told to stop obeying the Ten Commandments. God’s law to keep the Sabbath day holy was never changed by God but was changed by a man, Constantine and the Holy Roman Catholic Church. According to the Bible; YES we are still expected/required to keep the Sabbath day. Nowhere in God’s word does He tell us to honor Sunday, the 1st day of the week and keep Sunday holy. The Roman Catholic Church, by making Sunday the day of worship disrespects God, just as it has changed the law by ever directing people to call anyone, or anything, “Father” when we are told by God to call God Father.
