In an Instagram post this weekend Chance the Rapper explained that he is leaving the country for a while to go on his “first Sabbatical.”

Chance is known for incorporating Christian themes into his music, but, in the post, he explained that he doesn’t currently know the Bible all that well.

He wrote,

I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with. I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my Bible …

We all quote scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like, but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really read and KNOW his Word? I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it.

He later posted an image of a page of the devotional A Diary of Private Prayer by the late Rev. John Baillie. 

There’s no word yet on how long his sabbatical will last.
