Since I'm on this forum I'm reading countless threads about "keeping the Sabbath" (that's quite surprising cause I've never heard about these discussions elsewhere before, didn't know it was such an "hot topic" or relevant one in Christianity).

My question is: what does it mean to "keep the Sabbath"?

What a believer should practically do on Saturday to "keep the Sabbath"?

I've no idea about it because I usually read the Gospel and I don't find any indication on how a believer should concretely "keep the Sabbath", in other words I don't find any description on what's so special that a believer should do on Saturday, and not on Monday or Wednesday, in Jesus' words (let alone Thursday).

Nor I find anything special that Jesus was doing on Saturday, except doing the exact same things He was doing on other days, like Friday, and this way making some Pharisees angry because they didn't want Him to perform the same things He was doing on other days. (Mark 3:2, John 5:16-17, Matthew 12:10, and so on, like: "So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jewish leaders began to persecute him. In his defense Jesus said to them, "My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.")

So I sincerely don't know what someone should do to "keep the Sabbath", after reading every single Jesus' word in the Gospel, I don't find even a clue in His words.


the biblical "sabbath" is when(ever) a spiritual servant or religious worshiper reaches a point of having an opportunity to work for overall sanctification and salvation through righteous faith in the One Who is really the true Lord God, and they should better use it to worship/serve Him through things such as "prayer" and "fasting" - at the very least (the minimum requirement for) the worshiper is to not defile the creature/creation, which means, to not commit spiritual lawlessness

As noted in your more recent post,  this is worldly, carnal thinking, deceiving yourself.

Reference me scripture teaching otherwise.
