A life in Christ is like going to school. It involves lots of studying, learning, sacrifice, money and time. The only difference is – you don’t get to graduate – at least not here!
Just when you think you have something mastered, God shows you that you need the next level “course” in that area. It is constant and ongoing. Never, ever become complacent in your current level of experience in the Lord. The devil wants you a “baby” but the Lord wants you a bulwark of faith!
Many of you have degrees from prestigious universities. Others have degrees from the less prestigious, but often more effective, “University of Adversity” or the “School of Hard Knocks”. But no one on the planet has a degree yet from the School of the Holy Spirit…that graduation is yet to come. And it comes when you pass over into eternity with our great and glorious Teacher, Jesus Christ.
Until that time, buckle down, do your “homework”, read and study as He leads you and do well in the “lab of life”. Heck, you’ll be “Summa Cum Laude” with Him in heaven! Endure the fire—it’s producing pure gold!
