BIBLE STUDY NOTES

28.11.2020 THE CHURCH AND EDUCATION

 

“Nor did we seek glory from men, either from you or from others, when we might have made demands as apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, just as a nursing mother cherishes her own children. So, affectionately longing for you, we were well pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God, but also our own lives, because you had become dear to us” 1 Thessalonians 2:6-8

 

‘To restore in man the image of his Maker, to bring him back to the perfection in which he was created, to promote the development of body, mind, and soul, that the divine purpose in his creation might be realized—this was to be the work of redemption. This is the object of education, the great object of life. Love, the basis of creation and of redemption, is the basis of true education.’ EG White: Education. P 15-16

 

Throughout the Bible, God’s people have been called to educate and teach their families, their congregation and community the truth about God. That He is a God of love and light- His love is demonstrated to mankind as grace; His light is given to mankind as truth.

Thought for the Week

Praise to the Holiest

Praise to the Holiest in the height,
and in the depth be praise:
in all His words most wonderful,
most sure in all His ways.

O loving wisdom of our God!
When all was sin and shame,
a second Adam to the fight
and to the rescue came.

O wisest love! that flesh and blood,
which did in Adam fail,
should strive afresh against the foe,
should strive and should prevail;

O generous love! that He, who smote
in Man for man the foe,
the double agony in Man
for man should undergo;

And in the garden secretly,
and on the cross on high,
should teach His brethren, and inspire
to suffer and to die.

Praise to the Holiest in the height,
and in the depth be praise:
in all His words most wonderful,
most sure in all His ways.
