DAILY, WEEKEND AND HOLIDAY INTERNET EVANGELIZE TO THE WORLD MINISTRY

DAILY, WEEKEND AND HOLIDAY INTERNET EVANGELIZE TO THE WORLD MINISTRY.

I pray that you will be richly blessed with this prayer and teaching of why you worship on the first day of the week. May this enrich and encourage you to look in religious books to increase your religious knowledge of biblical events, things, person’s, places and events. You know your earthly job s.o.p. (standard operating procedure) books, now learn the Lord’s Word for whom you serve and worship by picking up your BibleChristian’s celebrate the first day of the weekThe Lord’s Day, and you do not know why–that is a shame and a disgrace because you follow tradition. I pray that this will be the beginning of your Christian learning and spiritual growth. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen. – Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy
Here is a short definition and synopsis of the “Lord’s Day”: 
Lord’s dayThe first day of the week (Sunday) on which most Christians have worshiped since Christ’s resurrection on the first day of the week
Kenneth O. Gangel, John, Holman New Testament Commentary; Holman Reference (Nashville, TN: Broadman & Holman Publishers, 2000). 398.
THE CHANGE IN THE DAY OF WORSHIP
As Stott suggests, another evidence for the reality of the Resurrectioninvolves the shift from Saturday to Sunday as the Christian day of worship. The Jews viewed the seventh day of the week as the Sabbath, their day of rest and praise. But from the beginning—from Resurrection morning—Christians have celebrated the first day of the week as the “Lord’s Day,”commemorating each week the rising of Christ from the dead.
The first Christians, remember, were staunch Jews who fiercely defended their day of worship as specified in the fourth commandment, a Sabbath to be strictly observed. In fact, many rules and rituals had arisen around theSabbath Day, and the consequences of shifting worship from the seventh to the first day were profound religiously, emotionally, and legally. TheSabbath had been observed every week for 1,500 years. Yet during one week, in one day, on Resurrection morning itself, all of that changed for these Jewish believers. It changed suddenly, naturally, and permanently. What could have produced such a change? Nothing but the Resurrection.
