Have you ever wondered why we have a seven day week? Have you wondered where our culture gets a typical five to six day work week and a day or two off? Our week was established by God in the beginning. God institutes six days of work and one day of rest. This day of rest was an important day in the nation of Israel. Unfortunately, many of the religious rulers made this day a burden. How does this day of rest apply to Christians today?

Genesis 2:1-3

1Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. (KJV)
