The original "Super Sunday", the day that the Savior of the world defeated Death and Hades (Sheol) and rose again from the grave ( Acts 2:22-36; 3:13-18; 4:10-12, 33; 5:29-32; 10:37-43; 13:27-37; 17:23, 30-32; 23:6; 24:14-16; 25:19; 26:68, 22-23, Rev. 1:18) is now the day of the week that His redeemed gather together to hear Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS Word. It is a day set apart by the Father for His saints to enter into His HOLY presence in a very special way; to worship Him in Spirit and TRUTH, to expose one's hearts and minds to the REALITIES of time and ETERNITY, to be challenged, strengthened and encouraged in the Savior and to fellowship with believers in Spirit and TRUTH (John 3:21, 4:24). How many churches across this land today have that mindset when they go to hear God's Word? Not many and that is a sobering very reality (Rev. 3:14-22).
My beloved, If the Lord's Day is not "super" to you then it is safe to say that the ETERNAL God, His Blessed Son, His saving grace and ETERNAL promises are not precious to you either and you might not be truly saved (Matt. 7:21-23, 2 Cor. 13:5, Jude 1:10).
Indeed football is a great game to watch and follow as I do but it can NEVER replace the Lord's Day in my mind and heart and I am not saying that to sound self righteous and full of piety. That is the Lord's truth. A saving personal relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit and TRUTH has absolutely no comparison and until one fully has surrendered to the will of Almighty God for their lives one will never be free to enjoy all things (John 8:32, 36).
(Matt. 6:19-21). It has been placed on a Sunday as a detour from the road to ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS to a road on which its bridge is out.
The Lord Jesus made this very sober remark to those who are obsessed and addicted with the temporal things of this world and not taking the ETERNAL serious enough.
"And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell." Matt. 5:29-30
"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Matt. 6:19-21
Do you know the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior? That is the ETERNAL question for all. "The world passeth away, and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of God, abideth FOREVER (1 John 2:17).
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
