3 Biblical Truths on Why Christians Worship on Sunday Instead of Saturday (Romans 14:6)


According to the Law of Moses and the Jewish Tradition, the Sabbath day was to be the seventh day of the week, Sunday as the first day. This was calculated according to the Jewish days and calendar.

According to Genesis 2: 1--3, the Bible says that God finished His work of making heaven and earth on the seventh day, and He rested on that day and blessed Him. Exodus 20: 8 also says, "Remember to keep the Sabbath day holy ..." So according to the Law and the Prophets (Old Testament), the Sabbath day was to be kept on Saturday, the seventh or last day of the week.l

Why do Christians worship on Sunday, the first day of the week? The biblical explanations for why this is so Christian are the following.

Background :

First, the resurrected Christ, the Lord, appeared the day after the Sabbath, which was Sunday. (John 20: 1–10). That is why the psalmist said, "This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it" (Psalm 118: 24).

Second, the revelation of Jesus that John saw in Patmos took place on Sunday, known as the Lord's Day. (Revelation 1:10). From this, it became clear that Christians worshiped on the first day of the week and called it "the Lord's day".

Third, when Jesus spoke about the Sabbath, he was alluding to it, not to a literal sense. The Sabbath meant REST. Well, God didn't care for that day, but what happened on this day. (Matthew 12: 1-8)

Finally, Romans 14: 1-6 makes it clear that it is not the day of the week that matters but the conviction of the heart before God. One can choose a day as his holy day, and God is acceptable; one can choose another day, and then God will accept him.
