Thoughts on The Lord’s Day

Man’s goings are of the Lord: how can a man then understand his own way?
—Proverbs 20:24

To know that our daily experiences are of the Lord must encourage our continual trust of Him and submission to His mysterious ways. He will provide for all His people who follow Him. Think of your past and how you have been guided and carried through to this point in your life. Praise the One who has richly sustained you. Look to the future glory that will follow those who have trusted and continue to live “looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith” (Heb 12:2). Walking by faith rather than by sight is the theme of much Scripture and Christian experience. Though we may not fully understand the meaning of our lives, how can we build up our faith and trust in the God who rules over us?

I would suggest by using the means that God has given us; the regular gathering together with God’s people in worship, submitting to the faithful preaching of the Word of God, prayer and participation in Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
