Live your biblical faith seven days a week.
These days, people talk about their schedules filling up 24/7—twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. We wear busyness like a merit badge, as if the more we do, the better we become. But R. Paul Stevens says that's not biblical. For Christians, life isn't about checking off "to-do" lists. It's about connecting with God and infiltrating thoughtful, biblical faith into our everyday lives. Sometimes that means activity, but sometimes not. Everyday spirituality embraces purposeful times of work, relationships, and rest, centered on God instead of personal or cultural expectations.
But how can you do it? It's not easy exiting the fast track to practice a slowed-down yet down-to-earth holiness. Stevens understands this, and offers practical insights to developing a "subversive spirituality"—a meaningful faith that seeps into your work, family, sexuality, friendships, outreach, aloneness, and leisure—and fills you with joy. But most importantly, it motivates you to lovingly abide with God seven days a week.
