What if everyday was Fall Retreat? That is, what if everday we played games together, sung praises to the Lord, studied the Bible and prayed together, had a bonfire, etc.? No doubt we would enjoy this for the first few days — even first week! We might even find that we feel closer to the Lord during this special excursion. But I imagine that eventually we would revert back to our same selves — struggling with the same issues and sins.
Learning to be faithful in the ho-hum everyday reality of life is critical to our perseverence in the faith. Thankfully we worship One who understands the ho-hum everyday reality of life because He has fully entered into this same reality!
Thanks to everyone who made Fall Retreat a good retreat to recharge so that we can reenter the world!
