To keep the Sabbath day holy is a command from the LORD. The Sabbath day is important before God and greatly beneficial to man ( humans ).
The Scriptures say that in the cool of the day, that is, at evening time, God usually come down to commune or fellowship with man. Infact, it was God that first observed Sabbath ( the time to rest and refresh ). When God saw that it was good, He commanded mankind to observe it. So, as mankind advanced and got busy during the day, he might have being worn out due to the day’s activities.
God being kind and merciful did not want to burden man who might have been tired and unable to focus on what God might want to discuss with him, due to fatique, He decided to shift the fellowship time to a day He declared. God called that day The Sabbath Day. Hence, He patterned man’s day of rest to fall on the Sabbath.
He rested when He finished the work of Creation. Also, knowing that on the Seventh day when man will be full of vigour and alert, therefore, God chose the day to have fellowship with man instead of daily evening time.

THE HEROES OF FAITH
The Good Confession
1TIMOTHY 6 : 10- 12
10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
2TIMOTHY 2 : 15 – 19
15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness. 17 And their message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort, 18 who have strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and they overthrow the faith of some. 19 Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity
3 Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.
No religion brought grace. It has been there for long. Religion only explain or shed light on it.
” Grace is the universal benevolence of God that is bestowed on mankind for salvation. ” The coming of the Son of God to earth, expanded grace to enable the weak and poor gain salvation and book a place in paradise.

( PROV. 5 : 15 – 20 )
15 Drink water from your own cistern,
And running water from your own well.
16 Should your fountains be dispersed abroad,
Streams of water in the streets?
17 Let them be only your own,
And not for strangers with you.
18 Let your fountain be blessed,
And rejoice with the wife of your youth.
What is religion?
An instrument of liberation not slavery.
An instrument of soul enlightenment not oppression nor confusion.
An instrument of righteousness not wickedness.
How are you using the instrument of religion ? Are you using it to liberate or enslave, to lift up the downcast or to oppress and suppress people, to engender righteousness or to propagate the acts of wickedness?
JESUS, the Son of God. He brought hope, joy and direction to the world. The man who gave his life to save mankind.
