8/23- Lord's Day

Devotional using scripture, quote from John Calvin and thoughts for the day each day- on the 500th anniversary of Calvin's birth.

21 "Six days you shall labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during the plowing season and harvest you must rest.

Calvin: Although the Sabbath has been abrogated, there is still occasion for us: to assemble on stated days for the hearing of the Word, the breaking of the mystical bread, and for public prayers 2) to give surcease from labor to servants and workmen

Thoughts: A day to rest, to get our priorities right, to worship- yet some think it is a curse to not shop, buy or work. Calvin said he wishes we were asked to worship every day, but God knew our hearts were hard. So God accomodates himself and paces us. Sunday is refreshing to me.

Prayer: Help us, Lord, to find our rest and peace in you.
