Sunday Seed Thoughts: Sunday or “Funday”?

Seed Thoughts

Worship is a frequent theme of the Psalmist.

“…I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple” (Ps 5:7)

“Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” (Ps 29:2)

” Exalt the Lord our God, And worship at His footstool —He is holy” (Ps 99:5).

No wonder the this man of God could affirm, “I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.” (Ps 122:1) Continue reading

Is Sunday a Holy Day?

October2013

“I do not find that Sunday is a hallowed day in and of itself. Acts 20:7 and Hebrews 10:25 do not–at least explicitly–say the day is hallowed. Why do so many of us consider the day “the Lord’s day,” or “hallowed?” 

This question, from a reader, is the second of a two-part question that I began answering in yesterday’s post.  Both were motivated by Monday’s “Word of the Week: Hallowed.”  Continue reading

Upon The First Day of the Week

With such an emphasis today on the “week-end” as a time for travel, recreation, or sporting events it is easy to forget that Sunday is the first day of the week.

It is a unique day in history.  It is a day sanctified in Scripture.  It is a day special to all Christians. Continue reading

IT’S FRIDAY. BUT SUNDAY’S COMING! The Importance of the Cross

 John Wooden, the  late, legendary basketball coach for UCLA always kept a cross in his pocket.  When asked why, he responded, “To remind me that there is something more important than basketball.” 

 I really enjoy the game of basketball, but I need to realize some things are more important.  I don’t want to be like the fellow who watched so much basketball that his wife said, “I think you love basketball more than me.”  To that he thought for a moment and responded, “Yes, Continue reading
