A Day For You

   God made a day of the week for you.


This is the day that the Lord has made;
    let us rejoice and be glad in it.  Psalm 118:24


 Remember the Sabbath day, and keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work. 10 But the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work—you, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the alien resident in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and consecrated it.  Exodus 20:8-11


   What, you don’t own any slaves?  How about employees?  Do you think that would fit the spirit of God’s command?


   Nobody owns our Sabbath, our Sunday, but God.  It is a holiday, a holy day.  And, he has given it to us to glorify God.

   How do we glorify God?  There are many ways, and God knows what our real intentions are when we do them.

   We respond to what God has done and is doing for us in worship with God’s people.

   The Holy Spirit draws us together for worship on this day.  Hearing and doing the work of the Spirit is what makes us Christians, rather than Christists (doers only), or Christophiles (hearers only).

   We are the community of God’s people, the corporate Body of Christ.  We are a new creation in Jesus Christ.  Sunday is our day for re-newal and re-creation in his Spirit.


17 So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! 2 Corinthians 5:17


   Come and worship the living God with us this Sunday. Come and worship with us this Sunday at Faith Lutheran Church at 8:30 a.m. or at 10:00 a.m.  We’re located at 505 East Bonita Avenue (one-half block east of the Post office) in San Dimas.
