Wednesday first came to be known as hump day sometime around 1950. This idiom pictures Wednesday as being the middle of the workweek and is based on the average work week of Monday through Friday. It pictures Wednesday as being the hump in a curve where workers are in the middle of that week and looking forward to its end.
Picture this if you can. There are seven days in each week and Wednesday is still in the middle. As the idiom implies, the middle of the week is more or less a slump to get over, or a hump as it is called to get over.
As a Christian, we should also picture this day as needing a boost; needing to get over the hump! Where can we get that shot in the arm? We can receive that very lift by attending the exceptional Bible Study here at Lighthouse Bible Church.
Sunday’s message is and will always be an essential part of our learning and walk with God. Pastor Ted Dudak brings us the Scriptures in a verse by verse, exegetical way that truly exposes His awesome Word. We always acquire a profound knowledge and meaning of the Scripture according to the Logos, Christ Word, not Pastor Ted’s.
However, by Wednesday we too should be finding ourselves needing more of the “whole armor of God.” (Ephesians 6:10–20)
We also should feel the slump in our lives and want to get over the hump. That is where Wednesday night Bible Study comes in. This study is extremely important and necessary in this time we are experiencing today. Remember, we are only going through the “Birth Pangs.” As pastor is going through the Book of Revelation, he is describing the time that begins in Matthew 24:15ff.
“And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:4–14)
P.S. It is okay to bring your youngsters (ten and older) to hear the Word of God in our Wednesday Evening Bible Study. If God put it in the Bible (and He did), then even the younger ones need to hear the Word (Logos), especially in these trying times.
“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:14, ESV).
