"Does Sabbath Matter?"
Luke 13 : 10 - 17
If you're reading this column, you know: Sunday is our day, the day around which church is centered, the day we say is holy, the first day of the week, the day of the week that Jesus left behind an empty tomb.
It's a practice not shared by everyone.
Sunday is also:
a day of recreation
Sunday Night Football
from 7 to 11 pm, Eastern time, the period in which the most people jam Netflix
part of the weekend shift for big box stores and emergency services
anything but church
What we do with Sunday has been changing since the 1960s, when there wasn't much anyone could legally do on that day except go to church.
Sunday was truly a sabbath? That Jesus would free people of their bent-over lives on that day? That God would free all sorts of people on the Sabbath, because that's what Sabbath truly is? Then why not come to church this Sunday, and run headlong into this Jesus who wants to free you from your life of disappointment and pain... on the Sabbath!
