"If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight... then you will find your joy in the LORD."
Sundays were always a foretaste of heaven to me when I was in prison. I went to chapel in the morning and spent the rest of the day reading sermons or listening to hymns on the radio. I saw Sunday as distinct from every other day of the week. It was a day to delight myself in God, His Word, and the fellowship of His people.
Not long after my release, I’d been without work for nearly a month and was concerned I’d be unable to pay my parole fees. Suddenly, a job opened up. There was only one problem – I’d have to work on Sunday. After much prayer, I decided not to forsake the assembling of God’s people (Hebrews 10:24-25). That Lord’s Day,
I rested in Christ.
The Lord used that experience to bring a pastor into my life who gave me work, brought me into his own home, and introduced me to a church that welcomed me as a brother in the Lord. It was there that I eventually met my wife. We’ve committed together to setting Sunday
apart from the other days of the week. Will you consider doing the same?
TRUE FREEDOM IS DOING THE WILL OF GOD FROM THE HEART WITHOUT REGARD TO WHAT IT MIGHT COST.
