Scripture: Revelation 1:9-11
9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day,and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book…
Why Just Sunday?
As I pondered what to write today, on this the “Lord’s Day,” a thought occurred to me. I fully understand why we attend church and worship the Lord on Sunday. But, what I don’t understand is the thinking, that Sunday is the ONLY day in which we worship the Lord. Each day is a gift from the Lord. When the psalmist penned the words, “This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24), he was indiscriminate as to which day we should rejoice and be glad. Every day is a cause for celebration and rejoicing.
Everyday is the Lord’s Day
It stands to reason then, that since the Lord made this day, each day IS the Lord’s Day and thus a day we can all be in His Spirit! Spirit-filled Christians have this experience afforded them EVERYDAY. We are admonished in Galatians 5:25, If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. We ARE living in the Spirit and thus every DAY is an opportunity for us to, live in, abide in, rejoice in, be lead by, be comforted by, be encouraged by, the precious Spirit of the Lord!
How Do I Feel?
My muscles are weak, and my joints are aching slightly. My appetite is still very low for all things, although I do still have grumblings in my stomach. My mind feels clear though. I am scheduled to teach this morning and our class typically runs for an hour (a little less). This will take a great deal of effort, but I am not relying solely on my own strength…
1I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
