The Lord’s Day

 

Sunday is the Lord’s Day, the Christian Sabbath-Day.  Our Lord fulfilled the Law by resting in the Sepulchre on Holy Saturday, (Saturday being the Sabbath-Day of the Old Testament,) after His Crucifixion on Good Friday.

 

On Sunday, Our Lord rose from the dead, conquering death and sin through the power of the Resurrection.  Since that day, we Christians have always kept the first day of the week, as the seventh day different from the other six, as the Lord’s Day; and, for us, every Lord’s Day is a “little Easter”, a weekly commemoration of the Resurrection, and a celebration of our new life in Christ.

 

On the Thursday of the Passover, on what Christians now call Maundy Thursday, Our Lord instituted the Lord’s Supper.  The Lord’s Supper, or Holy Eucharist, is the principal Service of the Christian Church which we Christians celebrate in order to “show forth the Lord’s Death until He come”, and to partake of our Saviour by receiving the wholeness of His living Person – His Body and Blood, His Soul and Divinity – when we receive the consecrated Bread and Wine in Holy Communion.

 

Therefore, every Sunday, “the Lord’s own people gather together in the Lord’s own House around the Lord’s own Table on the Lord’s own Day to partake of the Lord’s own Supper until the Lord shall come again”.  And until that day arrives, the Church of God celebrates the Holy Eucharist, Sunday by Sunday, Holy-day by Holy-day, in obedience to the commandment of her Blessed Lord and Saviour.
