Keep your eyes open for God at work

I have been reading The Unexpected Journey by Thom Rainer. The book is about people from 12 different faith backgrounds came to find and know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

The testimonies and stories of faith are revealed via interviews conducted by Thom, his wife and occasionally other staff members.
The book is a fun read because the narratives. There are details about each faith and each persons story on how they found Jesus Christ.
My heart has really been humbled and yet excited by reading these stories. One key I have been reminded of by these stories is that God is always working! Even when we think that are neighbors or friends are lost causes, we should not give up on them.
Be on the look out for where God is at work. God placed Christians in each of these respective lives on purpose to share Christ’s love and the Good News.
Simply showing Christ’s love to a neighbor you know is in need by serving them with a gift, food, merely talking to them or even prayer if God is pushing you to serve. The simple love of service can really open the doors to the lost person’s heart and prepare them for the Gospel.

When did church start Sunday service? Why?

Apparently the Roman church started it.

NOT ONE of the texts I read, set the first day of the week, Sunday, apart as a rest day or as an more important than any other day of the week.

A better question remains then:

Why Sunday over Saturday?

Which is really the Sabbath?

The Sabbath is still Saturday according to all a study of the Greek Hebrew Word.

So another great question remains:

Are we Christians today in trouble (or in violation) for using Sunday as oppose to Saturday? Or is God just generally happy that we are keeping “a day” out of seven holy, restful, and “Sabbath?” Will God at least punish the Roman church?

Final Thought:

Christ’s resurrection was on Sunday, this is why Sunday was so important.

An opposing thoery or thought could be that, Saturday was God’s “day of rest” therefor so it should also be ours…. (that assumes a 7-day Creation)…
