We are all digital natives. The pandemic has introduced a whole new vocabulary into our lives, with apps like Teams, Zoom, TraceTogether, and SafeEntry dominating our consciousness, demanding our attention in everyday life. Even before the pandemic, many apps were part of our daily routines: Whatsapp, Twitter, Instagram, Spotify and more. We spent untold hours navigating life through these apps.
As Christian pilgrims travelling together on our way home to the city of God, there are also Scriptural truths we simply must apply if we are to make it through life’s journey. This year we will be exploring some of them. They will be patterned after everyday apps that we use – but they are so much more integral to our lives than any smartphone app could ever be.
Pay careful attention, for within these applications lies the very secret of making it home safely through this side of heaven to the next: a secret as old as the Bible itself.
