To make your Sunday worthwhile according to God’s commandment, here are the five duties you should observe.
1. ATTEND THE SERVICE:
One of the important events that make Sunday worthwhile is to go to church and worship God.
Although some people believe that one does not need to go to church to worship God, but on a day like Sunday, which is set aside by God for the Christian community to worship, it is necessary to be in worship on Sunday to be in communion with God with others.
Rest is a very important ingredient for human growth. In fact, God has set aside the 7th day of the week, Sunday, specifically for man to rest.
This is because God Himself worked and created everything in the world for 6 days, but on the 7th day He gave up and rested.
In short, it is also applicable for man to set aside the day that God Himself honored for rest.
3. LENDING A HELPING HAND TO THOSE IN NEED:
Another obligation to keep on Sunday is to extend a helping hand to those who have nothing.
Some people think that you can only reach out to others or help your neighbours during the holidays, forgetting that poverty does not look like the time it occurs.
People have needs at all times and not just at Christmas time.
So, in order to keep God’s commandment, people must show their love for one another on Sunday by reaching out to those in need.
4. READING THE BIBLE:
Since the Bible is the greatest book ever written, and as a book that serves as a guide for life for mankind, especially Christians, it is advisable to read it at all times, and the best day to read and ponder it is the day God has set aside for rest and worship, which is Sunday.
At the beginning of each week, one is driven to ask God for a successful week, and it is a spiritual task that at the end of a week, when God has granted a successful week, one should thank God for making it possible.
Thanking God spurs God to do more for humanity. It spurs God to want to do more because you are grateful to Him for what has gone before.
The best gift to offer to God on a Sunday is the gift of thanksgiving. It is a person’s duty to get down on his knees and thank God for everything he has done.
