How are you using the extra time you have during this national quarantine?

Transcript

[Steve Myers] We know the Bible says that all things work together for good to those who love God. That's in Romans 8:28 Romans 8:28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
American King James Version×
. So even during these difficult times of quarantine, of isolation, it doesn't have to be a time that just goes to waste. We could think of it as a sort of sabbatical. A sabbatical is a time that we have to rest, to be rejuvenated, a time to be nourished, especially spiritually. We can draw closer to God. We have more time to pray, we have more time to study His word, and so we can do just that. Let's make this time a sabbatical.

It kind of refers to that a little bit in Psalms 16:8-9 Psalms 16:8-9 [8] I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. [9] Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
American King James Version×
. It says this: "I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore, my heart is glad and my glory rejoices. My flesh will also rest in hope."

You see, we have a great hope before us. So even though we may be socially distant, even though we may be in isolation, in quarantine, we can use this time as a sabbatical, to be nourished in the faith, to grow and be renewed spiritually. So let's set our heart and mind in that direction and draw even closer to God during this time of sabbatical.

That's BT Daily. We'll see you next time.
