Sunday and the Resurrection.

Do you really worship on Sabbath. I have my own conception that we live in the time of grace and the New Testament teaches the following facts:

Sunday, the first day was the day when Jesus was risen up and not the seventh day. Acts 20:7 says that "on the first day of the week the disciples came together to break the bread".  Sunday is the day of assembling because the resurrection of Jesus is the beginning of a new creature, the base of a new covenant.

In Rev.1:10 Sunday is called the Lord's day. So the first day always proclaims us the gift of God, the resurrection of our Lord. And this day is ordered us to be in community and service to God.
