I’m sure it will come as no surprise if I tell you that college is really hard! And stressful. And a lot of the time I feel like I have no idea what’s going on.
But there are somethings that are uber encouraging for me. Here is just 2 examples.
Stu Vac – I hate exams, but the time we get to concentrate on study is so fruitful for me in terms of consolidating the things I have learnt over the semester (and to verify I have learnt something!)
Moore blogs – I love that so many of my class mates blog about college work. It’s such a great reminder that the things we learn are meant to change us and mould us to be like Jesus. I love reading about how what we do in class, or read for class, really resonates with people and does change them and encourage them. Thanks fellow bloggers for your encouragement to me. I pray that you will always keep following Jesus.
And here is my short contribution. I read this last night in Martin Luther’s ‘Appeal to the ruling class of German Nationality’
‘it is the duty of every Xn to accept the implictions of the faith, understand it and defend it, and denounce everything false’
I think defending the faith and denouncing everything false are often forgotten (at least by me). What a great reminder that they go had in hand with accepting and understanding. I pray that God would help us all in humility and wisdom, to defend the faith and denounce everything false.
