The way of holiness that leads to happiness is a narrow way; there is but just room enough for a holy God and a holy soul to walk together.
— Thomas Brooks
Q. 59. Which day of the seven hath God appointed to be the weekly sabbath?
A. From the beginning of the world to the resurrection of Christ, God appointed the seventh day of the week to be the weekly sabbath; and the first day of the week ever since, to continue to the end of the world, which is the Christian sabbath.
— Westminster Shorter Catechism
A thanksgiving-day hath a double precedency of a fast-day. On a fast-day we eye God’s anger; on a thanksgiving-day we look to God’s favour. In the former we specially mind our corruptions; in the latter, God’s compassions; therefore a fast-day calls for sorrow, a thanksgiving-day for joy. But the Lord’s day is the highest thanksgiving day.
