The LORD’s Day Must Be Sanctified

The Baptist Catechism, Question #65

How is the Sabbath to be sanctified?

The Sabbath is to be sanctified by a holy resting all that day,⁠¹⁠ even from such worldly employments and recreations as are lawful on other days;⁠²⁠ and spending the whole time in the public and private exercises of God’s worship,⁠³⁠ except so much as is to be taken up in the works of necessity and mercy⁠⁴⁠

¹ Exodus 20:8, 10
² Exodus 16:25-28; Nehemiah 13:15-22
³ Luke 4:16; Acts 20:7; Psalm 92:title; Isaiah 66:23
⁴ Matthew 12:1-13

1695 Baptist Catechism

Today, let us pray for a much well-spent day with the LORD. Let us seek not to do things that may profane the holy day of the LORD.

Let us also pray for the LORD’s strength and wisdom to His ministers who will be preaching the word that they may preach Christ-centered, Bible-saturated, and Spirit-filled message with passion & power.

Blessed LORD’s Day!
