Vacation Time

Mark 6:31

(Mark 6:31) "And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat."

I. Rest is a Biblical Concept.

II. Never Take a Break from Doing the Will of God.

III. Remember, our Enemy Never Takes a Break.

Vacations, time away, relaxation, all of this is necessary and right for the child of God. There certainly is no reason for us to feel bad about taking that break. From time to time we need to have our batteries recharged. What that means for some may not be the same for others, but we need to rest! God created us and made allowances for that very need in our lives!

That doesn't mean we should grow lazy and comfortable. We still have an important task at hand. We are given the great responsibility to reach others with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. We still have an active enemy who is working to derail us and destroy us.

As with all things in the Christian life, we need to seek a balance. Are you obedient in the area of rest? Yes there is much to do, but we must be prepared to do it effectively.
