What’s a day to the Lord?

DOES IT MATTER TO GOD if I choose to worship Him on Saturday or Sunday, or on any other day for that matter? To answer this question we must turn our attention to the Bible.

The Jewish custom was, and still is today, to observe the Sabbath on Saturday (Acts 13:13 and 14; 16:13; 17:2).

However, we can also see in scripture the early church began meeting on Sundays soon after Christ rose from the dead.

This was done in honour of the Lord’s resurrection, which took place on a Sunday, or the first day of the week.

In 1 Corinthians 16:1 and 2, Paul instructs the churches to meet together on the first day of the week (Sunday) to give offerings.

Paul had already instructed the Galatians to do this on the first day of “every week”. Also in Acts 20:7 Paul meets with believers in Troas to worship and celebrate the Lord’s Supper (Communion) again on the first day of the week.

So, are Christians under any obligation to observe a designated Sabbath day? Again, the Bible makes it clear in Romans 14: 5 and 6.

So from this passage we see, a man, or an organisation may think one day is more holy than the other.

Whether we choose to worship on Saturday, Sunday or any other day for that matter, we should do it in honour of God.

We need to understand the liberty we have in Christ, and not turn back like slaves to legalistic observance of “special days” (Galatians 4:8 to 10).

God is more concerned with the condition of our hearts than on which day we worship – Saturday or Sunday, your right! Please let us all worship Him in spirit and in truth.

TROY YARDE
