This is the Lord’s Day

6 September 2020 1 By Nathan A. Hughes, Esq.

“ If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words.” 

Isaiah 58:13

The Lord’s Day is a day when the Lord’s people gather for worship, encouragement, edification, fellowship and as a public witness of unity amount God’s people. The Lord’s Day is the first day of the week. For those in the Western world this is Sunday. The early Christians met on the first day of the week in Acts 20:7 the Bible says, ”And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.”

It ought to be our delight to be among God’s people on the Lord’s Day. The fellowship ought to refrain from work and those things that are not necessary. We ought to dedicate the whole day to the worship and glory of God. Keeping the Sabbath is very important to us today. We live in an age where the Sabbath is not honoured. Sports, shopping, and other worldly things ought to be put off on this day.

1.Do you honour the Lord’s Day? 
2. Do you meet with God’s people for worship?
3. Is the Sabbath important to you?
