How Should Christians Use Their Vacations?

“Lord, as we enjoy times of relaxation this summer, help us to remember that we are never on vacation from Your will.” I read these words recently and they have captivated my thinking.

I’ve been thinking about whether there is a distinctly Christian way to vacation. We have learned to approach our work as vocation, a calling from God, but what about our leisure?

The word “vacation” itself doesn’t offer much help for this kind of reflection; with its echoes of “vacant” and “vacate,” it mostly conjures up a sense of absence. Vacationers commonly express a desire to “get away from it all.” While there’s nothing wrong with taking a break, stepping away – in a word, sabbath – there is also a trap in holding a merely negative definition of vacation. Perhaps you’ve experienced frustration, even despair, when you try to get away from your life for a while, but your life follows you. Maybe that’s part of why many vacations descend into family squabbles, as people seeking no higher purpose than to get away start to feel trapped by enforced togetherness.

Freedom has two sides (like most things) a positive and a negative. “Negative freedom” is freedom from, a lack of constraint, while “positive freedom” is freedom for, the ability to achieve or enjoy some good. We modern, Western people don’t like to be told what to do – especially not “on our own time.” Vacation for most is simply understood as “getting away from it all” is a sign of a negative concept of freedom.

The Christian faith, though, offers a strong counterweight to our culture’s tendency to try and “get away from it all”. To be a Christian is to confess that I am not my own – I have not created myself, and my own choices certainly can’t get me out of the mess I’m in. Even Paul’s strong claim of “freedom from” – “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage” – is closely followed by a reminder of the ultimate purpose of Christian liberty: “ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.””

(Galatians 5: 1, 13). Our “freedom from” is only worthwhile if it serves some good, to the glory of God.

As you plan your next vacation or think back on a recent one, what would happen if you shifted your focus from what you’re getting away from to what you’re getting away for? Is your vacation, just as much as your work, an opportunity to
respond in loving obedience to God’s call?

Trials & Thankfulness

Where does your thankfulness come from? Does it come from your circumstances or from God above. The world we live in is changing. If we follow Christ we will stand out, we will be different. The question is, as the world we live in changes, are we able to remain thankful? During trials are we able to still be salt and light to those around us? So many times we are willing to follow God if it won’t rock the boat too much. We may be willing to be a little different but certainly not completely contradictory to the social norm. Not different enough for people to take notice. As trials come, and they will, here are some verses that I have found particularly helpful and encouraging.

1 Peter 5:10 – But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

James 1:12 – Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

Romans 12:12 – Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

John 16:33 – These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Philippians 4:6 – Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Romans 5:3 – And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

Psalms 23:4 – Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Romans 8:18 – For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

James 1:2 – My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

1 Peter 4:12 – Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

Philippians 4:13
– I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Romans 8:28 - And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Joshua 1:9 – Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Matthew 19:26 – But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
