Why do you go to school? Why do you sit there for hours every week listening to your teacher? Why do you take out your pen and paper and take notes everyday?
Obviously, to learn…right?
If you have a doubt you ask the teacher – s/he clarifies and you go ahead. With each lesson, as you apply yourself, you progress, you grow and move forward. And because you work hard you excel...right?
Well, the same is with God!
"God is teaching you everyday but if you don’t take
in the instructions and don’t do anything about it,
how can you be a testimony?"
When you come to the meetings, it’s like going to school. You hear, you are taught various thing such as how to use your faith, how to have a good character, how to be an example etc. When you are not sure about something, you seek advice and through the pastors and assistants, God is able to help you.
As you put what you learn into practice, you see changes in your life and consequently you not only grow in your faith but also become a testimony.
But if like that rebellious student, you hear and come to the meetings but don’t do anything about it - how can you expect to see change and progress in your life?
God is teaching you everyday but if you don’t take in the instructions and don’t do anything about it, how can you be a testimony? How will your life ever change?
