Keeping It Holy

My Musings – The Sabbath day, according to the Old Covenant is the seventh day of the week (Saturday).  For most Christian faiths, however, the day of rest and worship is the first day of the week (Sunday), because that is the day Christ rose from the dead and ushered in the New Covenant.

It certainly is observed much differently today than when I was a kid.  Nowadays there is less rest and less worship.  We rush here and there doing this and that and at times are more exhausted by Sunday evening than we were on Friday evening.  We can sit and watch football all afternoon, but the sermon better be over by noon at the latest, so we can get on with “our” day.  Of course, that’s if we are there at Church at all.

My Advice – Jesus said that man was not made for the Sabbath, the Sabbath was made for man.  We need that day to set aside for our rest and to commune with and worship our Lord.
