People often ask me if they can work on Saturday. They want to know if it is okay to work on the weekend or if they should just take the day off. I understand that people have questions about this, but ultimately I think it comes down to what you believe about God and how He relates to our jobs. If you are a Christian and believe that Jesus Christ is God, then you might also agree with me when I say that every day of your life should be treated as holy time: time set apart for prayer, worship, rest, and other spiritual practices. If this is true—and it is—then why would anyone choose not only to work on Saturdays but also treat them like any other day? Is there anything special about Saturday?
Can A Christian Work On Saturday
1. Yes, a Christian can work on Saturday. The Sabbath day is Sunday. You can read information about this below:
Yes, a Christian can work on Saturday. The Sabbath day is Sunday. You can read information about this below:
In the Old Testament, God commands His people to rest and cease labor on the seventh day of each week (Exodus 20:8–10). In Hebrew, this commandment is called Shemini Atzeret (“eighth day of [Hebrew] assembly”). In the New Testament, Jesus Christ makes it clear that he has not come to abolish God’s law but rather to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17–19; Luke 24:44). He also affirms that keeping holy days is part of what makes his followers distinct from those who do not believe in him (John 4:21; Acts 18:21; 1 Corinthians 7:17). Sunday then becomes known as the Christian Sabbath because Jesus rose from the dead “on the first day of [Greek] week . . . early in [Greek] morning,” which would have been Sunday morning for most people living outside modern time zones (Mark 16:9; John 20:1–18).
The Jewish people today still honor their heritage by observing both Saturday and Sunday as Sabbaths each week. As Christians, we are bound by our Lord’s command not just because it was given specifically by him during his earthly ministry but also because it fits naturally into our lives without being burdensome or excessively expensive—especially since God provides us with all things necessary for life through his grace!
2. Christian Attitude Toward the 4th Commandment
The 4th commandment is about the Sabbath day. The fourth commandment is on Sunday. The Sabbath day is a day of rest. It’s a day we should be resting from work, it’s also a day of worship, where we go to church and praise God for all that he has done for us. And lastly, it’s a day of rest from sin in order to make sure that we don’t fall into temptation or start doing things that aren’t pleasing in the sight of God.
So many Christians look at this scripture and think “I have to give up my job? Is there anything else besides working somewhere else?” Well actually yes there are other things you can do besides working somewhere else! So let’s look at some examples:
3. What does the Bible say about working on Saturday?
The Bible is silent on the subject of working on Saturday. It says nothing about whether Christians should or shouldn’t work on Saturdays, nor does it mention that they must or must not work on Saturdays.
The Bible doesn’t say anything like, “Thou shalt not work on Saturday!” or “Thou shalt work on the seventh day!”
This may be a point of confusion for some people because there are many references to keeping the Sabbath day holy in the Scriptures (Exodus 20:8-11; Deuteronomy 5:12-15), but no statement about whether you should keep Sunday as a day of rest.
4. Does the Bible say that the Sabbath is on Saturday or Sunday?
There is no biblical evidence that the Sabbath is on Sunday. The Bible never says that the Sabbath is on Saturday or Sunday; it actually gives us a number of dates when to observe it (Exodus 16:23-29 and Leviticus 23:3-5). Among them are the 7th day and each 1st day of every month, but not only these days. It also mentions 8th days, 10th days, and 13th days in some cases (Numbers 28:16).
It should be noted here that there were two kinds of Sabbaths observed by Jews: annual Sabbaths (Passover) and weekly Sabbaths (Sabbath). The annual ones fall seven times a year – at Passover, Pentecost, Trumpets, Atonement Day/Yom Kippur (*), New Year (*), Tabernacles (*) – while weekly ones fall six times per year – on Mondays and Thursdays as well as Fridays before major holy days mentioned above.
5. Do Christians have to observe the Sabbath?
The Bible does not say that Christians must observe the Sabbath, but it does not forbid them from doing so. However, neither is there any rule against observing the Sabbath. The New Testament is often referred to as “the law of Christ” (1 Cor 9:21; Gal 6:2; 2 Cor 3:9-11), yet nowhere in these passages do we find any mention of keeping Saturday as holy. Rather than referring to a specific day of the week, these passages refer to all biblical laws (Old Testament) being fulfilled and superseded by Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. The Old Testament law was given because man could not keep it (Rom 10:5). It was designed to show us our need for a Savior who would come and pay for our sins by dying on a cross and rising again from death three days later (Matt 12:1-8). In other words, Christians are no longer bound or obligated by either God’s law or man’s laws since Jesus paid their sin debt when He died on Calvary’s cross nearly two thousand years ago!
6. Christians are not bound by the old testament law
The answer to this question is that Christians are not bound by the Old Testament law.
This is because Christ fulfilled the law for us, and in doing so, he also abolished it (Galatians 3:23-25). When a person becomes a Christian, he or she receives a new set of laws. As Paul writes in Romans 7:1-4 and 8:2-3:
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death your deeds as pertaining to all covetousness, lustfulness, And worldly desires, then may this grace remain with you in its fullness by means of Jesus Christ our Lord; who being raised up from among us went back into heaven after having given us his commandments through his servant Moses”
If you are a Christian, you may have heard of the Sabbath. The Sabbath is a day of rest and worship that is observed by many Christians as well as other religious groups. There are various rules about when to observe the Sabbath and what it entails, but one rule that is common to all versions of this holy day is that it should not be observed on Saturdays or Sundays.
However, if you work in an industry where Saturday is considered to be the standard workday (such as retail), then some people might wonder whether or not it’s acceptable for Christians to participate in such an activity. While there are no definitive answers to this question (as it’s up to each individual person), we can at least look at some reasons why Saturday jobs might be okay for Christians even though they’re not supposed to work these days!
