One day a week the Torah tells us to celebrate the creation of the universe. In the beginning of the creation, the world was missing "menuchah" - a total day of rest. Shabbos, the seventh day of the week, was created to complete the Creation. Each week we once again commemorate the most amazing event in history. By resting on this day, we make a statement acknowledging the Creator's creation.
(From Rabbi Pliskin's book, Serenity, p.98)
