Today is February 19, 2017. It’s just another day. Or is it?
For some it might be a special. An anniversary. A birthday. (Like my wife, Norma Jean). Or some other significant occasion.
Maybe for others it’s a day to relax. Sleep in. Play golf. Or go fishing.
For the workaholic, it might be a day to catch up on some project before Monday.
The Bible says, “this is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it” (PS 118:24) This day Christ rules. Reigns. And sits on the throne as King of Kings. Regardless of what you do today, or fail to do, He is “Lord of Lords” (1Tim 6:15).
For the Christian, today is not just another day. It’s Sunday. A day to celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. A day of worship. Fellowship. Communion.
If you’re “going to church,” that’s good. But what will this day bring?
* Deeper devotion ?
* Stronger faith?
* Greater zeal?
* Nobler thoughts?
* Purer living?
* Higher aspirations?
* Expectant blessings?
* Increased love?
* Fuller understanding?
* Intensified commitment?
Is today just another day for you? And will Sunday be just another Sunday?
Or will your faith make them both special in their own way?
Have a great day!
