Everyday is the time to Praise God

By Clifton Fox, Church of Christ

Sunday morning and every morning is a great day for Praising God: “So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows (Ps. 61:8).   What day does God expect Worship?   Some say Saturday is the day of worship. Others say Sunday is the Sabbath day of worship.  But, the Bible says that any day and all day is the day of worship. “I will praise you every day. I will praise your name forever and ever” (Ps. 145:2). Christians in the Bible worshipped daily: They Prayed daily (Lk. 11:1); Preached daily (Acts 5:42); had Bible Study (Acts 17:11); Exhorted each other (Heb. 3:13) and sang praises every day (Eph. 5:19-20).

 

Some say the Sabbath is God’s day to Worship.  What does the Bible say? “Observe the Sabbath day…six days you shall labor…but the 7th day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work” (Deut. 5:12). Three false notions about the Sabbath Law are corrected in this scripture: First, Sunday (the 1st day of the week) was never the Sabbath day. The Sabbath is the 7th day, and it never changed.

 

Secondly, the Sabbath never was a day of worship. It was a day of rest. Thirdly, the Sabbath was given only to Israel (not to Adam, Noah or Abraham). The Sabbath never existed before Moses gave that Law to Israel at Mt. Sinai (Deut. 5:1-3). Read for yourself. Nehemiah 9:13-14 also clearly states this.
