It is an important and vital purpose for Sabbath services: to be taught and instructed by God. As the living Head of His Church (Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 5:23), Jesus Christ is teaching and educating His people in truth—much of this is done during weekly Sabbath services (Luke 4:16). Christ's custom of teaching and educating on the Sabbath day continues today. “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). Christ still teaches His Church on the Sabbath in this present day!

God's use of the Sabbath day to instruct man began with the first Sabbath after man's creation. “It is evident that the Eternal (who, in human flesh later became Christ) first preached to man on the first Sabbath. Adam was created on the sixth day of creation week. Evidently he was created in the late afternoon, since the creation of man was the last act of creation on that day. When the sun had set, immediately after Adam’s creation, God preached to him, offering him the gift of eternal life (through the tree of life), and warning that the wages of sin is death (Genesis 2:15-17)” (Which Day Is the Christian Sabbath?). This is a wonderful truth revealed in your Bible!
