What Can You Do on Sundays?

“This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

Psalm 118:24

Ponder This

If we’re not under the Old Testament laws of the Sabbath, how do we keep the Lord’s Day? What are the regulations for keeping the first day of the week? I cannot give you any rules because the Bible does not give any. Be careful that you don’t try to take the Old Testament rules concerning the Sabbath and apply them to Sunday, the Lord’s Day. That doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten the Ten Commandments, which say, “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8). We simply see its ultimate fulfillment as it applies to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Is it a holy day? Absolutely—because it is the Lord’s Day! But it’s a day of love and not legalism.

So, is it alright to watch television on Sunday? Is it alright to go to a ball game on Sunday? Could I play softball on Sunday? Could I go out on a boat on Sunday? Could I go to the grocery store if we’re out of milk on Sunday? Good questions, but I’m not the one to answer them. It’s not my day. It’s the Lord’s Day. Ask Him, “Lord, how can I honor You on this day? How can I take this day and give You glory, reverence, and praise so at the end of that day I can say ‘Lord that was Your day’”?

  • What is your typical Sunday routine?
  • What would change if you were to ask God how to spend your day?

Practice This

Ask God to guide you in how to spend the Lord’s Day so that it honors Him.
