Do you think it matters what Christians do on Sundays? When I was young our Sabbath activities were restricted, but now, except for going to church, it seems like any other day.
I’m glad to see anybody asking that question today. The short answer is that the Lord’s Day shouldn’t be like every other day. Isaiah 58:13–14 says, “If you call the Sabbath a delight and the Lord’s holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in the Lord.”
The Sabbath is a gift from God of rest and delight. When we ignore that biblical truth we suffer spiritually, mentally, and physically. We can begin the day by preparing our hearts for worship. After attending church, we should consider what it means to honor God’s intent for us to rest. For some, that might mean a fast from technology and consumerist practices, a break in patterns that have become the default.
