About “Christian Recreation”:
“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.” -Mark 6:31
Yes, as Christians, we too need time to come away for a while and rest from the cares of this life! We are to take the time to enjoy the beautiful life God has blessed us with. But where do we go and what do we do to gain this pleasant rest and relaxation?
Surely the world has many options like the movie theaters, television, plays & shows, amusement parks, secular music concerts, parties and so much more. But do these options keep your mind heavenward? Do they fall in harmony with the principles of purity, holiness and righteousness found in the Word of God? Are they things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous and praiseworthy like those things we are told to dwell on in Philippians 4:8? Sadly, much of the popular “fun” things that the world has to offer doesn’t fall in line with heaven’s principles.
But don’t fear – God always offers something better than what the world does! The enemy just always tries to stop us from seeing it! We can still have fun in The Lord. Fun that helps us to even develop in body, mind and soul while also enjoying ourselves in rest, relaxation and wholesome fun! In this big beautiful world our Father has created for us to enjoy, there are many more options than we can probably think!
Join us as we seek the many beautiful options that the Lord has blessed us with for recreation, so that we can rest, relax, have fun, and still be drawn heavenward! 🙂
