“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” “Come to me . . . learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever.” – (Jeremiah 33:3, Matthew 11:28-30 and 2 Peter 3:18)
The Christian life is both life giving and life sustaining. It possesses everything we will ever need in Christ. We serve the Lord with joy because we already have our prize. We could call our life with Christ a journey of discovery. This is the spirit of a Christian in daily life and at the Bible College and Seminary.
Walking with Christ according to His Word offers us new and continual sources of contentment, satisfaction and joy not known before. There is nothing more exciting in life than experiencing something of the eternal while on earth. One never knows what God will show us tomorrow and the peace our hearts will discover.
To grow in a solid understanding of God’s Word is foremost. Then what joy it is when applied to life, faith and service to others. 2022 FLBC graduate, Sarah Gullickson, spent her summer on an FLBC team. “I am so pleased with my time at FLBC and with a wonderful church home at Hope Lutheran,” she said. Sarah explained how important her involvement was in the ministry of a local church. “In that way, one actually feels part of that church family,” she added. The practical application of classroom training translates the academic into meaningful action.
