BT Daily: TGIF! Why Are Fridays So Great?


[Steve Myers] TGIF! Today’s Friday and that seems to be a lot
of people all around the world’s favorite day because it’s Friday. It’s the end of the work week and most people
seem to really look forward to Fridays just because of that. The work week is finally over, life has been
so busy, now I can be done with work and I can have the weekend to myself. You know, I look forward to Fridays too, but
for a different reason. Friday means the Sabbath is just around the
corner. Starting tonight, Friday sunset to Saturday
sunset, the Sabbath begins. And what a wonderful blessing that God gives
us when the work week is over and the Sabbath has comeóthe seventh day of the week. In fact, He created it all the way back when
things began when He created the world, He created Adam and Eve, He created the Sabbath
for a special purpose. And boy, we never want to forget that. Every Friday it reminds me that the Sabbath
is on the way and the Sabbath means something special. It’s a great opportunity. God commanded it in Exodus 20:8, He said,
“Remember the Sabbath.” Of course, the world around us has forgotten
all about the Sabbath and most don’t understand what the Sabbath really signifies. But it’s a time that we can rest from working,
not just have the whole weekend off, but we can begin to focus on some important things. We can focus on the fact that God is our God. Resting on the Sabbath shows who our God is
and who His people are. God recognizes His people by keeping the Sabbath. And so it’s a wonderful opportunity that we
can be spiritually rejuvenated. I know people love Fridays because it means
Saturdays they can kick back and Sundays they can relax, but it’s more than just physical
relaxation when you come to the Sabbath. It also means we can have spiritual rejuvenation. We can have our spiritual batteries charged
back up on the Sabbath. We can develop a closer relationship with
God. We can develop a closer relationship with
our family and our friends. We can come together and we can worship God
on the Sabbath. In fact, it’s an important thing when Fridays
come I’m reminded who the Lord really is. Who is your God? You know, in Mark 2:28 Christ said that He
is Lord of the Sabbath. So it’s not just taking a couple of minutes
on Sunday and honoring Him, it’s the entire dayóFriday sunset to Saturday sunsetóshows
who our God is and who we are as His people. So we can honor Him, we can praise Him. We can develop our relationship with Him on
a much deeper spiritual level and of course with our family and friends as well. So don’t forget the Sabbath. TGIF! Absolutely. Thank God it’s Friday because it means the
Sabbath is just around the corner. That’s BT Daily. We’ll see you next time.
