Psalm am: 72

Romans 1:28-2:11 John 5:1-18


“For this reason, the Jews persecuted Jesus and sought to kill  him because he had done these things on the Sabbath
  —-John 5:1-18

There was a time when the world – believers and non believers – honored
Sunday as a day of worship and a day of rest. People believed that we are
supposed to “be good people” on Sundays (even if we did not subscribe to
this belief the other days of the week). Stores and business were closed on
Sundays. You did not go to work, you could not go shopping and there
were very few if any civic activities to attend – so people went to church.
Over time – laws, customs and traditions changed and gradually businesses
added Sunday shifts, stores and restaurants are open on Sundays and we
can now catch a Sunday matinée at any performance venue. Our hectic
lifestyle tells us that if we can’t get it done the other six days of the week,
we can still get it done on Sunday. We have learned to take advantage of
all that is available to us on Sundays. But does doing such make us less
than holy? If we are true believers and followers of Christ, we know that
effective ministry and worship is not just reserved for Sundays – but everyday
that we have an opportunity to serve, to give, to help and to love.
