How Do We Sanctify The Lord’s Day?

“Duties of this kind are first, preparing our minds for God’s solemn worship. Secondly, Hearing his Word. Thirdly, Solemn prayers. Fourthly, Partaking of the Sacraments. Fifthly, Works of Charity. Sixthly, Meditation and conference about holy things. Seventhly, A religious consideration of the works of God, of Creation and Providence, and even of those things which we occasionally hear or see, though they are otherwise worldly.”

~Dr. William Ames (1576-1633), “Remember the Sabbath Day,” http://www.apuritansmind.com/puritan-favorites/william-ames/how-should-we-think-about-the-sabbath-day/
