Jesus sent out his disciples two by two, for a time, to do the work of the Kingdom. After they returned to Jesus, “they reported to him all they had done and taught. Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:30-31
Jesus knew all about ministry. He also practiced rest. He understood that his disciples needed a quiet place to unwind, debrief and rest. I think a quiet place with Jesus right about now sounds good. Although I haven’t been all that regular blogging this summer due to a variety of reasons, this next week I am resting so there will be no blog. I hope wherever you are in the next week, that you make some quiet time to be alone with Jesus to rest, debrief, and unwind. Whatever your ministry, whether it be in the home, at a church or in the workplace, it/they will benefit greatly if you take a respite from it/them, even for a little bit of time. I’m looking forward to hearing God’s voice in the quiet.
