“We are not owners, we are stewards.”

This Sabbath day is a time for remembering the great commission. Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, has called all of His people to go and make disciples of all nations. Nevertheless, the Christian church, and each Christian steward, must seek the moments and the circumstances where the reminder of the commission will be made strong and firm again. This is a primary part of the good purpose of God for us. We dare not permit it to be set aside. We need the Sabbath day for this purpose.
