Memorize Scripture: Exodus 20:8

“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.” –Exodus 20:8

The Sabbath day is HOLY.  The word for “holy” in Hebrew is “Qadosh” which literally means according to Koehler and Baumgartner’s Hebrew Lexicon: “withheld from profane use, to be treated with special care.”

So the question for all of us would be is the Sabbath day withheld in our lives from profane use?  Is the Sabbath day treated with special care?  I think to know if the Sabbath is being treated in a profane way in our lives we have to understand that to “profane something” means to bring the secular into the sacred.  So doing secular activities on a sacred day would be profaning the Sabbath. 

Let us all keep the Sabbath Holy!
