The Eternal Sabbath

Let us not “neglect to meet together” with God’s people to worship on this Lord’s Day—keeping in mind the words of Trelcatius 1542-1602.

“Shall we not esteem the days of this life very short, if we compare them with the eternal Sabbath, which shall not only give an end to all our labours, but also change our six days into eternity?

Let us aspire with a holy desire and firm hope to the enjoying of this eternal life; sighing under the vanity and shortness of this frail and earthly life.  Jesus Christ saith, ‘For certain I come soon:’ let us, with the church, answer with holy affection, Come, Lord Jesus, come quickly.”

Dear Father, gather us, as your children, to remember and celebrate this day—for your glory and our joy.  In Jesus name, I pray. Amen
