Are You in God's Classroom?
Are You in God’s Classroom?
I suppose that all of us have had teachers that we really cherished. Who they are and what they had to say caused us to have a longing for being in their classroom.
God also has a classroom. It may be located in your bedroom, family room, study, back porch, or the break room at work. God’s classroom is also at the church building, but should never be limited to there.
Jesus says in John 6:45, “It is written in the Prophets, ‘And they will all be taught by God…” Whenever we open the Bible or listen to it, God’s school is in session.
In every school I’ve known there have been fairly strict attendance demands placed on students. Students are expected to come to class! It doesn’t take a brain surgeon or a rocket scientist to understand why. There is a direct correlation between being in school and what someone learns. (Wow, that was profound, wasn’t it?) Obviously, the same is true concerning learning the Bible.
But we are not talking about learning things like geography, mathematics, and history (as important as those things are). We are concerned chiefly with spiritual truths that guide our families, our worship, and our lives. They are truths that impact the quality of life we live and the way we train our children.
Consider these questions: How often are you in God’s classroom? How often do you allow God to teach you? Do you think the Creator has something worthwhile to share with you? When God takes roll, are you present?
God is willing to teach you every day! (see Acts 17:11). Are you in school?
