As Christians we all have probably heard the term “sabbatical”, but not many of us really know what it means. How many men & women in ministry can confidently say they are ministering out of an overflow? In this episode of Soul Talks, Bill & Kristi explore the spiritual, emotional and physical gift we find in the biblical practice of sabbatical. Learn how significant it will be for yourself, your family and those you minister to.
Hebrews 4:11 says, “Let us make every effort to enter God’s rest.” Men and women in ministry can be so caught up in serving the Lord that it’s difficult to give ourselves permission to rest. When we rest we can enjoy sweet communion with Jesus, deep healing and restoration. Join Bill & Kristi in an honest conversation about rest and our natural resistance to stop our work and busyness.
