Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.
Acts 2:46-47 NIV

Old Testament law designated the seventh day, Saturday, as the Lord’s Sabbath. After Christ’s resurrection on the first day of the week, Sunday became the traditional Lord’s day. Yet, in the earliest days of the New Testament church every day was a day to gather for praise, fellowship, and communion.

One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord.
Romans 14:5-6 NIV

The fourth commandment is a call to return to find rest in God’s perfect provision in Christ, not our own performance. Whatever day you give to God is a matter of the heart.

Are you currently honoring the Lord with a day each week? Why or why not? Ask Him to teach you to rest in Him every day.
