From the earliest times, God has commanded His children to keep the Sabbath day holy (see Bible Dictionary, “Sabbath,” 765). In our dispensation, the Lord has again emphasized the importance of the Sabbath.
The Lord has said, “Thou shalt go to the house of prayer … upon my holy day” (D&C 59:9). Why do you think it is important to meet together to worship God on the Sabbath? What can you do to prepare yourself for Sunday meetings?
Read D&C 59:10. What does it mean to rest from our labors? How does resting from our labors show our devotion to God?
What blessings does the Lord promise to those who keep the Sabbath day holy? (See D&C 59:9, 13, 15–17.) How does observing the Sabbath help us receive a fulness of joy?
