Matthew 12. "On Sunday?" Sunday August 20, 2017 11am What about Sunday? The bible is clear, that our Sunday, should be different, from the rest of the week. We will find, that this, is one, of the most difficult things, to pin down. We, should first, understand the importance, of church, where we can study, and meditate, on GOD’s word. Then we, should do activities, that will help free us from the mental and physical activities of the previous six days. Leviticus 23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. So many, have a list of things, to do and not to do, and they feel superior, if their list, is longer and or, if they keep more things. Because, the Bible’s instructions, on how to keep the Sabbath, holy in many areas, are not clear, to many, do not push, our interpretation on others, but trust God, to speak, to each individual heart. What reinvigorates, our physical and mental outlook, might not, do so, for another. Jesus said, that Sunday, was created for man, and not man, for Sunday. So, Sunday, is supposed to be, reinvigorating for mankind. A list of what I should do and not do, will be burdensome, and that is what Jesus, is trying to get, away from. If someone, has a real need, on Sunday, if we can, we should, meet that need. The Pharisees, and many churches, have rules to prove, that they, are religiously doing all the right things on Sunday. However, Jesus got right to the heart of the matter, by telling them, and us, it is a heart matter. A. Work of necessity and mercy can be done on the Sabbath 1-13 B. Caring for control, not to help people, Pharisees plotted to kill Jesus. 14-21. C. Every Kingdom divided will fall 22-37. D. No sign for the end is needed, only GOD knows when. 38-45 E. Whosoever is born again is my brethren! 46-50 May GOD through Jesus our savior, bless you with His grace and peace multiplied.
