It means that on the seventh day of every week people who believe in the Creator should rest and do no work and have no one working for them.

Juanita, keeping Sabbath (Saturday) Holy involves more than you have mentioned, in my opinion.
It means that although we can worship God on any day of the week, this particular day is the day, we spend in prayer and meditation. We celebrate (my husband and I do ) with a special meal, they way the Jews celebrated their Sabbath.

After all, as Christians, being born again, we are Jewish in Christ, as He Himself was a Jew and "the Lord of the Sabbath"
