You may not be going Back to School or have kids headed back to school but we must remember that does not mean we don’t need to be studying and learning all we can about Jesus, by staying in the word.
Just like the routine we have when we or our kids are going Back to school, we always need to be ready. Ready to tell people what we believe and why. God tells us to share the doctrine, the doctrine of Christ crucified and resserructed , for the whole world to be forgiven if they chose to accept him; the doctrine, that everyone is invited to be fellow heirs, and there is no salvation in by any other but Jesus Christ.
I Peter 3 15…“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:“
Let’s get prepared to go back to school so we can be ready to grow stronger in Christ to spread the Gospel!
