Living as a Family on Mission
Key Scriptures: John 15:1-12, Exodus 20:8 Woven into all of creation is a fundamental principle: We are designed to work from a place of rest; not rest from work. In John 15, Jesus takes it even further and suggests that if we aren’t regularly resting in him (abiding) we can never bear Kingdom fruit. We need times of rest and recreation with Jesus and with our families every day, week, season, and year. If we neglect this truth, neglect times of rest and perpetually push the pendulum to Work, eventually it will lead to a crash. What’s worse, without times of abiding Jesus tells us that all our efforts will be fruitless.
