Ray Ortlund is a pastor in Tennessee and a guy who often speaks to my heart through his blog. I would urge you all to frequent his blog and read his short, pithy, edifying posts (click here to check it out right now!).
Going along the lines of something I (David) posted last Saturday ("Getting the most out of tomorrow's sermon"), Pastor Ray has posted a provocative (insightful/challenging/edifying/clarifying/etc....) blog post entitled, "Sunday is not a second Saturday". Please take two minutes to read this post and pay special attention to the conclusion. For your benefit, I'll post the entire entry below:
If we would stop treating Sunday as a second Saturday, one more day to run to
Home Depot, one more day for the kids’ soccer games, another day for getting
ready for Monday, if we would rediscover Sunday as The Lord’s Day, focusing on
him for just one day each week, what would be the immediate impact between
today and one year from today?
By one year from today, we will have spent 52 whole days given over to Jesus.
Seven and a half weeks of paid vacation with Jesus.
He’s a good King. Maybe we should put him first in our weekly schedules. Not fit
him into the margins of our busy weekends, but build our whole weekly routine
Just a thought.
