But what is the meaning of the phrase “on the Lord’s Day?” In one sense, it may be said that every day of the week belongs to the Lord, and so might be called the “Lord’s day.” But John [in Revelation 1:10] is referring to something more specific. He does not speak merely of “a” day that has been consecrated to the Lord. Instead he speaks of “the” Lord’s Day. That one day that may be called “the Lord’s Day” was the day in which He proved to the world that He was Lord. On one particular day, Jesus made the universe understand that He was Lord of all. That day was the day of His resurrection. On that day, he conquered the last of the sinner’s enemies, which is death. On the first day of the week, he showed that his power could overcome all enemies, even death itself. That day is “the Lord’s Day.”
