From the Confessions: The Small Catechism
The Third Commandment
Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.
What does this mean?
Answer: We should fear and love God so that we do not despise his Word and the preaching of it, but acknowledge it as holy, and gladly hear and learn it.
Pulling It Together
Faith comes through the proclaimed word of Christ Jesus, the message of the gospel. It is the good news because salvation comes by no other name (John 14:6). Jesus Christ is the way to the Father (Eph 2:18). We should remember the one day above all others each week when this good news may be heard, and pray that by our holy example, others will come and hear the gospel proclaimed by a preacher, hear it, believe, and be saved. In this example, we see that the day is observed, not only for ourselves, but for others.
Prayer: Order my priorities, Holy Spirit. Amen.

One For All is a nine-session Bible study explores the center of the Christian faith by focusing on the unique and exclusive promise of Jesus. It examines not only the claims that Christ made about himself in Scripture, but the claim that the Lord makes on our lives as well. By focusing on the Gospel message of salvation in Christ alone, the study seeks to show how God makes us a part of His mission to the whole world, and how "the love of Christ urges us on, because we are convinced that one has died for all."
