Are you becoming Jewish?
No, I’m not a Jew but I want to follow what God says in His Word. The Holy Bible makes it clear to have the 7th day off from all the work you do. It’s true, I may even work 6 days in a row if I had to, but have the 7th day off (which is Saturday). It is one of the 10 Commandments and God makes it clear to keep the day holy. I love God and take my relationship with Him seriously.
I want to follow and obey what God says. This is why I have the 7th day off.
