But today is only Saturday...

Tozer's devo for today.

But the Lord is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him. Habakkuk 2:20

"So I've got to tell you that if you do not worship God seven days a week, you do not worship Him on one day a week. There is no such thing known in heaven as Sunday worship unless it is accompanied by Monday worship and Tuesday worship and so on....

We come into God's house and say, "The Lord is in His holy temple, let us all kneel before Him." Very nice. I think it's nice to start a service that way once in a while. But when any of you men enter your office Monday morning at 9 o'clock, if you can't walk into that office and say, "The Lord is in my office, let all the world be silent before Him," then you are not worshiping the Lord on Sunday. If you can't worship Him on Monday you didn't worship Him on Sunday. If you don't worship Him on Saturday you are not in very good shape to worship Him on Sunday."

I like the sentence that starts with, "There is no such thing known in heaven as Sunday worship..." It's man who has made God a "Sunday" God and a "church" God (the building, that is). Oh that the church (the people) would grow in the glorious understanding that Christ is our life, rather than somebody we only worship and pay attention to once a week in a specified location.
