Sunday

with 2 comments

Thank you, Ray Ortlund:

If we would stop treating Sunday as a second Saturday, one more day to run to Home Depot [read, B&Q, perhaps, for the UK], one more day for the kids’ soccer games, another day for getting ready for Monday, if we would rediscover Sunday as The Lord’s Day, focusing on him for just one day each week, what would be the immediate impact between today and one year from today?

By one year from today, we will have spent 52 whole days given over to Jesus. Seven and a half weeks of paid vacation with Jesus.

He’s a good King. Maybe we should put him first in our weekly schedules. Not fit him into the margins of our busy weekends, but build our whole weekly routine around him.

Just a thought.

And a good one.

  1. I certainly sympathize with Ortlund’s desire that professing Christians would keep the Lord’s Day as, well … the LORD’S day. However his words (and I realize that I don’t have the full context) strike me as a timorous suggestion rather than the heartfelt cry of a McCheyne who pleaded with his generation to turn from their Sabbath breaking.

    • There is no context – that’s it! I acknowledge that it is hardly a battle-cry, but it’s a start for many who have no thought of a Lord’s day (and hopefully, not a finish).
