Early enrollment open for the fall semester of the School of God

Wouldn’t you have liked to be taught your faith, face to face with the originator of your faith.  Think about it.  Jesus.  The creator of all things.  The knower of all things.  The man with infinite love, justice and truth.  Wouldn’t you have liked to be in His classroom? Jesus apparently graded on a pass/fail system.
 
Peter was one of His 1st students.  It was a tough class!
 
PASS: “When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”  They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.”
.
FAIL: Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!” Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.”
 .
Much of the time I feel like I am placed in Jesus remedial learning class.  Sigh…

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
