"That is why the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath." —Mark 2:28

Will this year be a re-run of the old year or truly a new year? It will depend on whether you keep holy the Lord's day. Sunday, the new Sabbath, was made for our benefit (Mk 2:27). If we let Jesus be Lord of the first day of the week, we have a good basis for Him being Lord of the week, the year, and our lives. We will truly have a new year if we let Him be Lord.

We draw our strength from the resurrection of Jesus (1 Pt 1:3), especially as celebrated on Sunday, Resurrection-day. On this day, we receive rest, re-creation, and the strength we need to "run the race and fight the fight" throughout the week (see 2 Tm 4:7). On Sunday, we mount up as "with eagles' wings." We run and do not grow weary; we walk and do not grow faint (Is 40:31).

Christians who keep holy the Lord's Day don't burn out. They "show the same zeal till the end, fully assured of that for which [they] hope" (Heb 6:11). They "do not grow lazy," but "through faith and patience" inherit God's promise (Heb 6:12).

How did you live the first three Sundays of 2007? This will tell you whether 2007 will burn you out or fire you up.

Prayer: Father, teach me how to live on Sunday.
Promise: "Like a sure and firm anchor, that hope extends beyond the veil through which Jesus, our Forerunner, has entered on our behalf, being made High Priest forever." —Heb 6:19-20
Praise: Although Jacob dresses casually for work, he dresses up for Sunday worship to honor his risen Lord Jesus.
