(Exodus 20:10) but the seventh day the sabbath of the Lord thy God.

Saturday (i/"0"4s"0"3t"0"5rdi/ or/"0"4s"0"3t"0"5rde"0"1/) is theday of the week followingFriday and precedingSunday. Saturday is the seventh and therefore last day of the week according to many commonly used calendars, but it is the second-to-last (sixth) day of the week according to ISO 8601 (see below).

However, when Jesus renewed the covenant by dying and rising again, we celebrated his ressurection on Easter. Besides, the Sabbath can be any day of the week as long as we come together with family and friends to rest and praise God!

This saying of you, "Besides, the Sabbath can be any day of the week as long as we come together with family and friends to rest and praise God!", is based only on your own counsel, but while the bible plainly testify, that only the 7nt, of all the days was the Lord sanctified, and declared as His sabbath. Please read and understand, exodus 20:8-11 - "Remember the Sabbathday by keeping it holy.
Six days you shall labor and do all your work,
but the seventh day is a sabbath to theLord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.
For in six days theLord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day.Therefore theLord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

The Sabbath day was a shadow figurative of Christ accomplishing through the cross man's need to appeal to God through works to maintain a relationship with Him. The true Sabbath is God's rest that He gives those who love Him. To burden again men with a requirement abolished by being fulfilled on the cross is to darken the counsel of God. Through the Commandments, God showed men that they cannot do anything of righteousness in and of themselves. Through Christ, we are made the righteousness of God through Christ's sacrafice on the cross, and the promise of the Holy Spirit indwelling us and leading us in God's power following the transformation by faith. So, I believe it minimizes the Sabbath and does it grave injustice to fight about which day to observe God and rest in Him, when He intends for it to be a perpetual event.

I pick no side in this debate. The Bible advises us to let each observe worship of God as each is convinced in his conscience to do. I do pose this question, however; if a man holds the law of the Sabbath, but yet sins the same as a man who observes a Sabbath of a different day, will God take less seriously either's sin? As it is written, "For to one, one day is holier than another. But to another, each day is equally holy."
God is not as concerned with such specificities as He is concerned with the grace we bestow on others in devotion to Him.
