If Sunday is "the Lord's day," a day set apart for religious observances, what exactly should we be doing? Some are content merely to attend a worship service in the morning, while others might feel very constricted by the notion of a Sabbath day of rest and worship. Yes, the Lord's day does restrict our behaviors on this day, just as the rest of God's commands restrict us from sinful behaviors. But it also encourages those things which are a great blessing to us. Watch as Pastor MacLaren speaks practically about the nature of "sabbath observance."
What day should we observe as a day of rest? In our modern 24/7 world, a day set apart for rest and worship is dismissed as irrelevant to the modern age and a hindrance to the interests of business and entertainment. Of those who are still religiously observant, some believe that day should be on Saturday, others on Sunday. Watch as Pastor MacLaren gives evidence for why Sunday is set aside for the Christian as the Lord's day, a Christian Sabbath.
Worship Services are designed by God for our maturity in grace and knowledge, and their elements should be faithfully presented within Christian churches. Sadly, some of these elements are neglected or downplayed in many modern worship services that neglect the reading and faitfhful preaching of Scripture. Watch as Pastor MacLaren applies the OPC Confession of Faith to current life.
