Thank you!!! I'm one of those evsngelicals who finds confusion on this subject. I grew up in the 60s and 70s following the tradition of the Lord'd Day, including Canadian legislation that upheld it. But when it began to slip, especially beginning in 1985, at the federal level, I just wasn't hearing any evangelicals willing to defend it Scripturally. So now I'm digging for myself and recovering the "ancient landmarks". This sermon was so encouraging.
Great Sermon! He mentions Acts 20:7 which I never really noticed before. But if you examine it phrase by phrase you will notice it is no mistake the Holy Spirit has given us this statement. They meet on the first day of the week to break bread, Paul preaches to them until midnight, waiting to depart on his journey until the Day is ended. Awesome testimony from the New Testament to the Christian Lord's Day.
Interesting sermon! I enjoyed the sermon. I've studied the Sabbath and there were parts I agreed with you and parts I did not. I appreciate you preaching about the Sabbath though. This commandment Seems to have been forgotten.

Great Sermon! You Free Presbyterian preachers always hit it right on the head and get to the point. I love it! Thank you for a refreshing and to-the-point sermon about the Lord's Day, the Christian Sabbath. I needed to hear this, as I have been having some confusion concerning the Sabbath day, and some contention from others. God bless you.
Thank you for speaking truth! I have been blessed by this message as it reinforces the biblical teaching or family has finally understood! Now Sundays are a delight as we each do our own study (after church at home)and then come together to read good theological volumes instead of...bike-riding, fishing, doing crafts, sewing...! Now I just pray that others will listen and heed!

Great Sermon! thank you for reminding us of Gods Day is HOLY
Things are no different in SA in Sunday all the stores are open all day and even christians forget that this is a Holy day when they spend the day shopping.This is why the Lord cannot
bless us because we are no longer faithful to His Commandments.Yet we want Him to hear all our prayers and even question Him when some prayers are not answered as we want it to be answered.May God bless you.Thank once more

Amen! Thank you for the wonderful sermon... praise God! Thank God for a day in which we can rest in the finished work of Christ, by following His example in worship, fellowship, and works.
