                      The Seventh Day...

One day my friend asked me, "Why worship the Lord on Sunday?
       After creating all things, He rested and sanctified the seventh day!
Sunday is not the last day, but the first day of the week," he said.
       "Saturday is the seventh day. So why worship on Sunday instead?"
"Thatís a good question," I thought. "Iím not really sure," I replied.
       "Does it have something to do with when the Lord was crucified?"

"No," he said. "The Lord was crucified on Friday. Of that we all know,
       but Iíve asked numerous people this question. Iíve no where else to go!"
Iíd never thought about it before. I guess Iíd always taken it for granted.
       So I said, "Thatís just the way things are or the way the Lord planned it.
"Thatís not right," he said. "Look at the calendar and you will see
       that Saturday is at the end of the week! Right where it ought to be!"

"And just how do you know Saturday is the end of the week?" I sighed.
       "Because it says right here on the calendar!" He smirkingly replied.
"Yes, but thatís manís calendar," I said. "Does He use the same one?
       Or is His calendar different? Just as many other things He has done.
He has created worlds without number. The universe, full of His best
       and unless ours was the first He created, Heíd already have a day of rest.

For Saturday to be His seventh day, Heíd had to of begun on Sunday.
       But if Sunday was His day of rest, Heíd have begun His work on Monday."
How it is, we know not. But we know the gateway to eternity was perfected
       on that very special Sunday; the day our Lord and Savior was resurrected.
I suppose many days could be chosen, as some choose Friday or Saturday.
       Why not choose the day He was resurrected, that great and glorious Sunday.

   "Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto
   the sepulchre...and they found the stone rolled away...And they entered in, and found
   not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed
   thereabout, behold two men stood by them in shining garments...And they said unto them,
   Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen..." Luke 24: 1-6
