Don’t Forget Monday (1 Thessalonians 4:1)

God is quite popular on Sunday. Millions of people around the world stop what they’re doing to visit a building where the sole purpose is to meet with others to worship, sing, and learn about God. But then Monday rolls around. What place does God have in their lives then? When the emphasis is on a thousand other things, they can easily go all week without considering Him.

Even among many believers who go to church on Sunday, God’s name isn’t spoken in reverence. Often His plans are not considered, and His guidelines for loving aren’t given a thought.

Where did we get the idea that God wants our attention only on Sunday? Certainly not from the apostle Paul, who said we are to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) – a sure sign that God is listening on Monday to Saturday too. Paul also wrote, “Rejoice always” (v. 6), which indicates that we shouldn’t stop singing just because the organ stop playing. And what about the command, “In everything give thanks”? (v. 18). That would surely suggest that the rest of the week is just as full of opportunities to say, “Thank You, God.

Sunday is a special day to give direct attention to God. But it doesn’t stop there. Don’t forget Monday! – Dave Branon

The Christian life is not confined

To church one day a week;

God wants us to obey His Word –

Each day His will to seek. – Sper

Worship God on Sunday, then walk with Him on Monday.
