Far from being the most important, as insisted upon by some sects, the fourth commandment is the only commandment not repeated for Christians to observe in the New Testament. The dispensation of the law ended with Christ’s death on the cross in which He took away such requirements as holy days, new moon observances and the sabbath day restrictions (Col 2:14–17). Even though believers now normally worship on Sunday, according to the new pattern of the dispensation of grace (1 Cor 16:2; Act 20:7), it is best not to work without an interval of rest as God’s original pattern shows.
