When I was sitting in a Bible School similar to CETA I heard my Spirit filled teacher expound the Scriptures.
Joy, life, and vision came into my way of thinking. Since those days I have always believed that Christians should go to Bible School and get established in God’s thoughts for them. Much is lost in people’s lives because they do not first seek the Kingdom of God.
Dr. Stevens, my pastor who is the founder of our affiliated school in Baltimore, Maryland said that many people know how to make a living but do not know how to live.
When Jesus Christ walked on the earth in His flesh He was the great Counselor of men. He was so penetrating in His teaching and ministry that He lovingly challenged His followers – and always served them, encouraged them with words of life. Life is too short to live in a wrong way. Who can direct their footsteps?
Has not Jesus told us to build our houses on His teaching? What can we loose if we first loose everything to Him? How?
If we regularly submit ourselves to Him and His word, then we like Mary will sit and receive something that we will never loose.
We need His doctrine. We need His challenge, we need His covering and His comfort. We need His people, Matt 10:41, 42. God is for you mightily, much more than you realize, II Cor 9:15.
Follow Him with all your heart in steps of faith. Learn of Him, Matt 11:28, 29 as He said “Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, take my yoke upon for my yoke is easy and my burden is light… learn of me for I am meek and lowly in heart.”
Great to have you with us.
