‘Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded you. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God.Deu 5:12-14a
A church united in its observance of the Lord’s Day will also weekly demonstrate the unity that is found in Christ. With Christ as the Head of the church, a church that shares one faith, one baptism, and one Lord, would not the unity be best displayed by sharing one day of particular devotion to the Lord? The collective witness of a united global church giving a weekly Sabbath to the Lord would have quite an apologetic witness to an increasingly secular world that will not understand why Christians are sacrificing their time and money for God. Weekly Sabbath worship would proclaim to the world that worship is worth sacrificing our time and money, and that God is worthy of such sacrifice.Jon English Lee, Ecclesiological Implications of the Sabbath (Part 2)
Today, let us pray for some brethren who may need to work due to God’s current providence for them. Let’s pray that even in their workplace they may seek to find special time to worship the LORD.
Let us also pray that our Christian witness to the world as we worship the LORD on His Appointed Day be a testimony of our dependence on the true God.
Blessed LORD’s Day!
