The Sabbath Was a Sign

The Lord choose Israel and gave them a sign that they were to keep weekly to remind them of something, “And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, ‘Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: “Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you”‘” (Exodus 31:12-13).
The Lord set aside the Sabbath for Israel. It was a sign between the Lord and Israel. Israel kept that sign to teach them that the Lord sanctified them.
Remembering who does the sanctifying is important. While the Lord does not expect the church to keep the seventh day of the week, He does expect us to remember that He sanctifies us.
