Colossians 2:16 (a) The sabbath day is a shadow and a type of the perfect rest which every sinner finds in CHRIST JESUS when he ceases to work for his own salvation and trusts the Saviour to blot out all his sins, redeem his soul, bring forgiveness, give him eternal life, and make him a child of GOD. Immediately this friend rests in the Lord and begins to keep the true sabbath. This same thought is found also in Hebrews 4:9 (margin). where the rest which the Lord gives to the trusting soul is compared to the sabbath of the Old Testament. In those days Israel came to the seventh day, and then rested. In our day the Lord JESUS says, "Come unto Me, and I will give you rest." He is the true sabbath, and He is our sabbath.
