Sunday is noted as the first day of the week on our calendars. It’s also the last day of the weekend. To most Christians, it is a day of worship and rest. My oldest grandson even used that as an excuse not to do any kind of work on Sunday. We may have a difference of opinion on what Sunday means, but we can be sure that it’s a day to prepare for the week ahead. Whether you prepare by thanking God for all your blessings of the past week, or spend time refueling yourself in a house of worship, it should be a day in which we take time to think about our Creator.
One day a week really isn’t enough. We should begin each day with God as our guide. Corporate worship, however, gives us an opportunity to publicly declare our faith, our thanksgiving and our praise.
With summer at the front door, don’t take a vacation from God. He doesn’t need our praise. He is beyond our thanksgiving, yet He is glad when we come into His house to share in His salvation, His means of grace and the spiritual uplifting each one of us desperately needs to survive another week. We come confessing our sin, knowing that He has forgiven us. We rest in the assurance of the forgiveness of our sins and the promise of eternal life.
What a great way to start every new week. See you in church!!
