Continuing Education

3 steps for continuing education in Christ, Bible Study, Prayer, Fellowship
  • Good physicians keep updated on the latest research, medicines, and cures.
  • Good teachers learn about new methods and curriculum.
  • IT People keep up with the latest technology.
When I started blogging, I soon realized that I would have to continually self-educate to keep up with the ever-changing blogosphere.

However an extensive survey of born-again Christians shows that “Fewer than one in five (18%) claims to be ‘totally committed’ to engaging in personal spiritual development. Further evidence shows that among adults who claim to be Christian, just one out of every seven (14%) say that their faith in and relationship with God is the highest priority in their life.” (Barna, 2011)

We need to ask ourselves:
Are we being deliberate in our “continuing education” in spiritual things like:

  1. Study of God’s Word (2 Timothy 2:15)
  2. Fellowship (Hebrews 10:24-25)
  3. Obedience (James 1:22-25)

Maturity never happens by itself.

Today I'm evaluating my plans for continuing spiritual education. Do you have a plan?
