Given that many of us are self-quarantined and/or working from home these days, we may find that we have more free time than ever before. Indeed, the internet is filled with stories of “bored” folks stuck at home with nothing to do, searching for some way to entertain themselves.
Under the heading of Paul’s exhortation to make “the best use of the time, because the days are evil” (Eph 5:16), let me make a suggestion: take a seminary class.
I can’t tell you how many times people have approached me over the years and expressed a desire to dive deeper into God’s word, or to explore church history, or to understand Reformed theology, or to learn how to defend the faith. And the reason they have not done so is almost always the same: they don’t have the time.
Well, now you might have the time—indeed, more than you ever expected or wanted. And you can do it all right in the comfort of your own living room.
