The earliest reference we have to the Lord's day, besides the vague comment made in the Book of Revelation (), is in the letter to the Magnesians written by Ignatius of Antioch in A.D.

So yeah, there is definitely a difference between the Sabbath and the Lord’s Day but because of the freedom that we have in Christ, we can choose to worship Him on any given day of the week. I wanna thank you also for pointing out another important aspect of living a life that pleases God, that is, treating others that way we treat ourselves.

The original Sabbath is based in the seven days of the Old Creation: God worked six days and then rested on the LAST day of the week.

There are several more so I encourage you to do your own scriptural study on the meaning of the Lord’s Day. Exodus This is the third in a series of four posts on the Sabbath/Lord’s Day issue. The first post was a survey of the pertinent Scriptural passages related to this subject. The second post was a survey of how views on this subject have developed throughout church history. This is a list of quotations from the early church fathers which I believe support my thesis.
The Christian Sabbath is Sunday, the Lord's day, the resurrection day of Jesus. And I agree with that.

The Christian Sabbath: Its Nature, Design and Proper Observance - by Dr. R. L. Dabney The Lord's Day and Christian Sabbath - God Requires You to Keep the 4th Commandment as Well as the Other 9 Today, many Christians are turning back to the puritans to, “walk in the old paths,” of God’s word, and to continue to proclaim old truth that. The Lord's Day is a test of obedience, challenging us every week of our lives to willingly and gladly obey the Lord's will. Disregard it, and we collapse into a self-centred, self-serving, self-indulgent Christian lifestyle, as many have already done. The Lord’s Day is both a day of spiritual opportunity, and a spiritual safeguard for all of. Question: "What day is the Sabbath, Saturday or Sunday? Do Christians have to observe the Sabbath day?" Answer: It is often claimed that “God instituted the Sabbath in Eden” because of the connection between the Sabbath and creation in Exodus Although God’s rest on the seventh day (Genesis ) did foreshadow a future Sabbath law, there is no biblical record of the Sabbath before.
