Saturday is before Sunday. And it is with great intention that Saturday is before Sunday. Saturday is the Sabbath, the day of rest. It is the seventh day in which God rested from his work of creation. So, on Saturday we remember that our God is the Creator God, who made all things and sustains all things. Then there is Sunday, the first day of the week, but also the day that the Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead! So, we remember and celebrate on Sunday the God of redemption!
So, Saturday is before Sunday – the two days coincide together – remembering the Sabbath prepares us for celebrating redemption.
Romans 11:20. “but you stand fast through faith. So do not become proud, but be in awe.” My prayer for myself on this Saturday, is also a prayer for our church. May I, may we, be in continual awe of this great salvation.
