Pipa, Joseph A., Jr.
Is Lord's Day observance simply a quaint tradition that was nice for previous generations but really isn't relevant for Christians today?
Isn't the Sabbath just part of the Old Testament law that New Testament believers don't need to be concerned about?
In this pamphlet, author Joseph Pipa carefully guides you through the Scriptures, answering frequently asked questions about the Lord's Day along the way, and helps you to see that the Lord's Day is for you not as a burden, but as a blessing that will lead you to delight in God as you are freed from work and worldly pleasures to worship Him.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said that what the church needs to do most all is “to begin herself to live the Christian life. If she did that, men and women would be crowding into our buildings. They would say, ‘What is the secret of this?’” As Christians, one of our greatest needs is for the Spirit of God to cultivate biblical godliness in us in order to put the beauty of Christ on display through us, all to the glory of the triune God. With this goal in mind, this series of booklets treats matters vital to Christian experience at a basic level. Each booklet addresses a specific question in order to inform the mind, warm the affections, and transform the whole person by the Spirit’s grace, so that the church may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things.

“The keeping of a day of rest as part of our weekly routine has been God’s plan for us since the beginning. In this study, Joey Pipa gives us clear teaching on why God enshrined this plan in the fourth commandment, why it is still relevant, and how it ought to be applied. A very helpful pamphlet for twenty-first-century Christians.” — Iain D. Campbell, minister in the Free Church of Scotland, Isle of Lewis, and author of On the First Day of the Week: God, the Christian, and the Sabbath.
