Is it all right to watch television on Sunday? Is it all right to go to a ball game on Sunday? Is it all right to eat out on Sunday? Can I play softball on Sunday? Attend a business function on Sunday? Go out on a boat on Sunday? Go to the grocery store on Sunday? Good questions.
Do you know the only thing wrong with those questions? You’re asking the wrong man. It’s not my day—it’s the Lord’s Day. It’s the Lord’s Day.
God said, “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it” (Exodus 20:8-11).
Ask Him, Lord, how can I honor You on this day? How can I take this day and give You glory? How can I give You reverence? How can I give You praise so at the end of that day I’ll say “Lord, that was Your day”?
I know what some of you are going to say: “Well, Pastor, every day is a holy day with me.” That’s true, but the Lord’s Day is extra special.
