Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed. Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, “So I declared on oath in my anger, ‘They shall never enter my rest.’ ” And yet his works have been finished since the creation of the world. For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: “On the seventh day God rested from all his works.” And again in the passage above he says, “They shall never enter my rest.” Therefore since it still remains for some to enter that rest, and since those who formerly had the good news proclaimed to them did not go in because of their disobedience, God again set a certain day, calling it “Today.” This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.” For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.

Some want to do Holy work all day long or as often as they can.
Kinda what our Pastor preached today...feed my sheep. He said it's not a Sunday thing, but Monday, Tues., etc.
...if you do not wish to practice the Sabbath, then don't...God says that those who follow His commands are those who love Him.
This is why Eric said what he did. No one has implied that you don't love God, but that's exactly what you just told us...that since we don't follow the Sabbath the way you do, that we don't love God.
I'm so weary of this conversation, this will be my last response.....promise. I haven't asked you to practice the Sabbath, God did. How do you know how I practice the Sabbath????
I'm frustrated, tired, and weary, but I will continue in my world view. You don't love God if you do not follow His Commands. It's not ab0ut me, never has been...it's about JESUS. The LORD has stated His Word, those who love Me follow my commands. Over amd over and over throughout Scriptire.
Look to Scripture to see how you Love the LORD.
I think we have hashed this discussion out as far as it can go. Thank you to everyone for the replies. This discussion is now closed.
