Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind!

This is not just a wish, it is a command.

Please read this entirely, all verses and my thoughts before you reply. Thank you.

Sabbath! Is it a day of our earthly week or could it be something else?

I\\\'m sure there are many more, but, I feel these are a few pertinent verses and chapters on this topic: Matthew 12:8; Mark 2:27 and 3:4; Romans chapter 14; 1 Corinthians 5:17; 2 Corinthians 4:18; Hebrews 3:11 & chapter 4; James 4:14.

Romans 14:5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
Romans 14:6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
Romans 14:7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
Romans 14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord\\\'s.
Romans 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

I\\\'m somewhat curious. Is a certain day of our earthly week truly what is important? God and the unseen realm is eternal. The life of a flesh human is like a wisp of smoke or a vapor in comparison to the eternity. Does the word sabbath mean a 24 hour period here on earth or does it mean something else?

Let\\\'s say a human man lives to be 50 years old. How many earth days is that? 18,250 days, if my math is right. There are 52 weeks in a year, thus there are at least 52 sabbath days per year; regardless of what day you call sabbath. 52 X 50 years = 2,650 sabbath days in that 50 year period or about 15% of that 50 year period. If a humans life is like a vapour compared to the eternity, how can something that only occurs in a fraction (15%) of that time be important to Him? I have to admit that I am befuddled; I do not understand. I\\\'ll ask the question again. Could the word sabbath mean something besides a day of the week here on earth? I think it does. I believe it to be the rest we enter into when we believe on Him (Jesus Christ, Hebrews chapter 4). I choose not to believe it is just a certain day of our earth week, as some may choose to do. I believe it goes way beyond that.
