So we, being many, are one body in Christ,

The Sabbath Day was established by the Most High and sanctified (made holy) from the beginning of the creation. The Sabbath Day is observed from the evening of the sixth day (Friday) to the evening of the seventh day (Saturday).
Genesis 2:1-3 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. (2) And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. (3) And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
