You Can’t Go Your Own Way

I was told today that many people would not get my reference to Stevie Nix in this morning’s sermon:

first of all Stevie is wrong (see Scripture below after the video).

Here it is

Isaiah 58:13-14 13 “If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the LORD’s holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, 14 then you will find your joy in the LORD, and I will cause you to ride on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.” The mouth of the LORD has spoken.

The rest of the sermon will come later this week.

  1. Lindsey Buckingham wrote the song about his breakup with Stevie. Stevie didn’t like the song and it hurt her to sing it. I see senior pastors violating the Sabbath right after delivering a service. Beam…Mote…?

    1. Sometimes Bill it is all a matter of what your view of the Sabbath is, however, scripture is clear that Priests “work” on the Sabbath. The idea of rest; therefore, for the pastor must fall to another day. Sunday is a day of worship but the Pastor needs a separate day of rest – since the Sabbath was made for man not man for the Sabbath. It is interesting to note that Calvin thought play was acceptable on the Sabbath while the congregationalist in England thought it was prohibited. In other words men of good conscience can disagree. As for me – I’m with Calvin on this one.
