Rev. Paul J. Miller – Sermon Outline – January 27, 2019

Series Title: “A Space for Worship”

Today’s Title: “Which Day is the Lord’s Day?”

Today’s Text: Colossians 2:9-23

 

WORSHIP WEEKLY

Sabbath

  • Genesis 2:2-3 establishes Sabbath, the day God rested
  • Sabbath Law was vital to keeping the Law of Moses
  • Our body, mind, and soul need rest

 

Do/should Christians keep the Sabbath?

  • In Acts, Sabbath at the synagogue used to spread the gospel

    • Acts 13:15, 16:13, 17:2, 18:4
  • Sabbath in the Epistles
    • Colossians 2:16 – Don’t be judged by Sabbath practice
    • Hebrews 4:9 –A “Sabbath rest” for God’s people
    • Except Gospels, no other N.T. verse mentions “Sabbath”

 

Why do most Christians have public worship on Sunday?

  • Scripture has some hints, but no clear directive

    • Acts 20:7 – “broke bread“ on the first day of week”
    • 1 Cor. 16:2 – collection “on the first day of every week”
    • Revelation 1:10–John’s vision came “on the Lord’s Day”.
    • Early church used “the Lord’s Day” because it was the day that Christ arose. (Ignatius of Antioch)

 

WORSHIP DAILY

Start every day with prayer

  • Psalm 5:3, 55:17, 59:16, 88:13, 90:14, 92:1-2, 143:8

 

WORSHIP AS A PATTERN FOR LIFE – Romans 12:1-2

Your greatest act of worship is to be a “living sacrifice”

  • By breaking the patterns that don’t work (of the world)
  • By renewing your mind (thinking differently)

As transformation happens, the will of God becomes more clear
