How to observe God’s Sabbath is covered in the United Church of God booklet, Sunset to Sunset—God’s Sabbath Rest, but this message goes into more detail regarding the “how to.” This message emphasizes the joy and blessings experienced from wholeheartedly celebrating it. It also cautions against the human tendency to “add to or take away from” God’s laws and then try to impose those extra rules on others (Deuteronomy 12:32)
