Never on Sunday

Are there some things that you refuse to do on Sunday? The younger generation knows nothing of restricted Sunday routines. Over the last few decades more and more businesses have expanded service to seven days a week. To individuals working six days a week it is beneficial, having so little free time during the work week. I can remember Perone’s, our local small town drug store, opening their doors after normal business hours to fill urgently needed prescriptions. Today large pharmacies face each other at busy intersections. Competition keeps them open 24-7.


Lover’s of the Lord honor Him all week long, but Sunday is a special time set aside for worship and rest. Legalism does not need to return. In the early 1980’s our family moved from Arkansas to Texas. We accidentally forgot to pack our pots and pans. On arrival we discovered our mistake. We went to a large grocery store that Sunday to pick up a few groceries and a couple pans. Certain items were restricted on Sunday. We could buy the groceries, but not the pots to cook them in.


Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath. Jesus is Lord of all. Religious leaders judged Him for gathering grain for eating on the Sabbath day. (Luke 6:1-2) Jesus knew they were hypocrites. He gave an Old Testament illustration that revealed His authority. (Verses 3-4) On another Sabbath He healed a man with a crippled hand. (Luke 6:6-11) That really resulted in anger and condemnation. Ask the question. What would Jesus do? “Jesus finished by saying, The Son of Man is Lord over the Sabbath (Luke 6:5 CEV).”


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Pam, my late maternal grandfather who was a pastor taught me the importance of being at our best on Sundays. After nearly half a century you have reminded me 'Never on Saunday'.God Bless You.

I loved this title!!! I can relate to this article as well having lived in Arkansas at one time. We had just arrived in a little house we bought, didn't have all our stuff with us yet and my son's onlly "good pair of pants" were ripped. We wanted to go to church that am and could not because I had not needle and thread, could not buy needle or thread because of the "Blue Law"...which I had never heard of before. The stores were "roped off" with yellow tape to keep customers out of buying anything but food. No church on that Sunday, Em
