A Letter to Family About Why and How We Keep the Sabbath Dear __________,
I have been meaning to write this letter for some time now. You both know Georgine and I have been Sabbath-keepers for many years.
I know that you know many things about Seventh-day Adventists and about
our particular understanding of the Bible and its truths.
But I would like to give some specific information about the Sabbath and why we keep it in the way that we do.
First off, I’d like to apologize to you both for not living up to all of the light
that we have received from God, and especially about keeping His Sabbath day holy.
Unfortunately, we have often known better than we have done.
And this poor witness has probably been one of the main reasons for the
lack of communication about how important the Sabbath is to us. I know that you both know that the Sabbath day in the Bible is Saturday. The Sabbath starts in the evening, at sundown, and goes until the next
evening, or sundown.
We take this from the creation story that each 24-hour day consisted of an evening and morning that made up the whole day…
Genesis 1:5 “And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
