Joys of being a student!

To my 3 loyal readers:

Forgive me for not having written in quite a while. In the last 3 weeks I have:

  1. Written a paper on the identification of the "rock" in Matthew 16:18 (15 hours)
  2. Written a sermon on Isaiah 24 (15 hours)
  3. Preached a sermon on Romans 12:1-2 (20 hours - Research, Typing, etc.)
  4. Travelled home and back. (Good ol' Rocky Mount)
  5. Discussed the blend of Biblical and Systematic Theology with a friend (1.5 hours - **I should've been doing homework...just for kicks)
  6. Become an associate member at Heritage Bible Church in Greenville. I am helping teach 2nd grade Sunday School there. I also am involved in the College/Career class there.
Having given almost every waking moment to school work almost makes me question whether I am spinning wheels or actually progressing. I say this somewhat in jest. However, I try to keep in mind that what I am learning is not what makes me. It is who I am growing to know and love that is transforming my heart to faith and obedience to God.

Just a 'blip' on the screen of eternity is my life. Knowing the futility of living this life for myself or to accumulate possessions is causing me to evaluate my use of time, money, and energies. Only the gospel is worth living for...and dying for!
