Sermon on 4th Commandment - keeping the Sabbath day holy
Sabbath is about past,
present and future. This Supper is also about past, present and future. Past: Sabbath looks back to the creation of the world. This Supper also looks
back to God giving His people food in the Garden at a tree of life. Christ’s cross and resurrection are in view, to which we also look back. Present: Sabbath is a day to worship and
rest, as this Supper is time in the present to commune with Christ. Future: Sabbath is a
sign of coming complete rest, as this Supper is a sign of the coming complete
feast and fellowship with Christ.
