Today is a Rest Day. There is no new Bible reading to do. Today, the goal is simple: rest in the presence of God. Maybe you need to use today to get caught up on the reading plan if you’re behind, maybe you want to journal what you’re learning so you don’t forget what God is teaching you, or maybe you want to spend time in concentrated prayer–do that. Above all, just spend time in God’s presence.
Watch This: The Calling of Matthew
Prior to following Jesus (and penning this gospel account of His life), Matthew was a tax collector. This profession made him somewhat of an outcast, which made Jesus’s call on his life all the more radical.
Check out this scene from The Chosen to see a depiction of what it was like when Jesus called Matthew to follow Him.
