Alexander’s Counsel for the Lord’s Day

January 22, 2017

Avoid undue rigour, and Pharisaic scrupulosity, for nothing renders the Lord’s day more odious. Still keep in view the great end of its institution; and remember that the sabbath was instituted for the benefit of man, and not to be a galling yoke. The cessation from worldly business and labour is not for its own sake, as if there was any thing morally good in inaction, but we are called off from secular pursuits on this day, that we may have a portion of our time to devote uninterruptedly to the worship of God Let every thing then be so arranged in your household, beforehand, that there may be no interruption to religious duties, and to attendance on the means of grace.

Archibald Alexander, A Brief Compend of Bible Truth, 191-192.
