On the first day

“Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene came early to the tomb. (John 20:1)  “When it was evening, the first day of the week.” (John 20″19)  “And on the first day of the week when we were gathered to break bread.” (Acts 20:7)  It is a FACT of history.  Early Christians gathered on the first day of the week (Sunday) to worship.  It is a SYMBOL of our doctrine–a celebration of the empty tomb and all that it means!  The resurrection of Jesus Christ is THE turning point of time and eternity!  His resurrection is the birth of the church.  His resurrection is what we believe and how we hope and why we worship.  Tomorrow is Sunday.  It is the first day of a new week.  We will study the resurrection of Christ. (1 Corinthians 15)  What possible reason could we give Jesus for not gathering and rejoicing and giving and worshiping?  I will see you in a few hours ,dear friends.  Because He lives!
