Special Days

Every day is unique in that we don’t know what blessings it will bring. If we are able to rise up and see another day, we should consider it as a blessing from God. However, some days are special or sacred to us because on one occasion, something happened. Some celebrate certain days because it’s festive to them.

At first, this used to be ‘holy-days’ but now that even Google doodles remembers some people, every day is something worth to remember someone or an invention. So many things have happened in our history past, and it’s worth commemorating the good ones. Let’s read Romans 14:5-6

One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.

He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

Left to Paul alone, there is no holiday or special day, not even the birth (Christmas) or death (Easter) of Jesus Christ. Days are nothing really in the sight of God, except Sabbath day, which is somewhat special (rf. Genesis 2:3). It is somewhat special because God hallowed it, resting from His work and Moses made it a must for the Jews.

There was some time when weekends were my Sabbath days because in that period, I relaxed and rested from my job. That was how important weekends were to me when I was working. Today, I regard every day alike because it is nothing really. When I see a new day, it means that there is something for me to do or fulfill, and that I must act – upon it – promptly.

What are special days? They are nothing really to divide us. We cannot and should not have different faiths just because we esteem one day to be holier than another. The National Sunday Law, which applies to most churches, means nothing if we esteem all days alike… being a Seventh Day Adventist is nothing because you’re not a Jew.

Are days important? Like God set it, they are just to mark seasons and times (cp. Genesis 1:14-15). One day cannot be better than another. They are only better because we esteem it so or think that they are unique. To say, all days are the same or alike. There is no difference really. Their names don’t make them unique, whether they are named after gods or natural elements or after certain persons.

I just want to set your mind right about this one thing, that no days are special than the others. If you don’t know, better days are coming/ ahead i.e. eternity in heaven. God bless you.
