I Love Sundays

Man do I love Sundays!  It’s not that one day is more holy than another … the Gospel has made every day a day of worship (Colossians 2:16).  It’s not that the Word has more power to pierce our soul Sunday than the other six days, it’s always ready to undo us (Hebrews 4:12).  And it’s not somehow that we get more grace, favor, or blessing by coming to church, He is always ready to lavish His grace upon us whenever we ask (Hebrews 4:16).  It’s just that on Sunday we call our hearts and minds away from lesser things to set our hearts on the greater thing (Colossians 3:2), we rehearse here for that great and glorious Day to come(Revelation 5:11-14), and as we set the LORD before us we are reminded that in His presence is fullness of joy (Psalm 16:8-11).  My Sundays start early – coffee, quiet, prayer, anticipation, reflection, dependence, more prayer, the smell of the church building, the empty space soon to be filled with precious believers, the desire to see many embrace the Gospel for the first time, the joy of corporate worship, kids running around, the sweetness of the preached Word, the weary built up, the burdens of the week lifted, the weight of sin repented of, the hope of heaven sought, God exalted in the midst of broken pots … WOW, it’s a foretaste of glory divine!

Can’t wait to enjoy Sundays with you all,

Pastor Mark
