God's Sabbath: A Rich Delight
George T Geis

We read in Genesis 2 that God rested thee seventh day and blessed and sanctified it. Jesus taught that the Sabbath was made for man (Mark 2:27-28) at the time man was made. Our booklet Which Day Is the Christian Sabbath? explains how we know which day it is that God calls the Sabbath and why it is important to keep it. I want to expound a bit on the meaning and purpose of the Sabbath and show why we have been given this law by God and how to make the Sabbath what God intended it to be - an opportunity to pursue some of the very highest ideals of human life. In Genesis 2:1 we see the beginning of the Sabbath day. "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it [which means set apart for a holy use]: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made."
