Saturday Is the Sabbath
J. Vernon McGee told of a man who came to him and said, “Ill give you $100 if you will show me where the Sabbath day has been changed.” McGee answered, “I dont think it has been changed. Saturday is Saturday, it is the seventh say of the week, and it is the Sabbath day. I realize our calendar has been adjusted, and can be off a few days, but we wont even consider that point. The seventh day is still Saturday, and it is still the Sabbath day.” He got a gleam in his eye and said, “Then why dont you keep the Sabbath day if it hasnt been changed?” McGee answered, “the DAY hasnt changed, but I have been changed. Ive been given a new nature now, I am joined to Christ; I am a part of the new creation. We celebrate the first day because that is the day He rose from the grave.” That is what it means that the ordinances have been nailed to the cross, Col. 2:14.
