Building the Rising Generations - Glorifying Jesus Christ through Distinctive Education

 

DAY 26 

 

PETER AND UNIVERSITY WITH JESUS

  

Read:

 

Luke 5:1-11; John 21:6; and Acts 2

 

Peter, the impulsive disciple, has always kept my mind thinking of the grace of God and His uncommon ways in dealing with us, His children.

 

I've noted four significant stages in Peter's life.

 

1)      Jesus meets Peter: Luke 5:1-11. Jesus comes to Peter's boat and begins one

of his very first teachings. When Jesus asks Peter to cast his net deeper, Peter argues, but ultimately obeys out of respect. Then Peter witnesses an amazing miracle. The boats were filled with fish beyond capacity! Peter realizes that this person in his ship is unique. He along with his companions humbly follow this Jesus.

 

2)    University life begins: For the next 3 years, Peter studies for his "B.A. degree" in the University with Jesus. Peter is an emotional student. He is full of ups and downs. The miracles that Jesus performs and the teachings that Peter witnesses remind him of who he is following. Jesus knows what He has for Peter - He keeps him close - Peter is near when Jesus raises the synagogue ruler's daughter, at the transfiguration, and when the 5,000 are fed.

 

3)    The final demonstration: In John 21:6 Jesus reminds Peter of their first

meeting, of who He is, and why Peter chose to follow Him in the first  place. Then Jesus makes sure Peter understands and realizes that Jesus really loves him.

 

4)    The mission begins: Acts 2. After accepting Jesus' love for him, Peter was ready to live for Jesus. The day of Pentecost came and Peter was sealed by the Holy Spirit. And we know the results.

 

Challenge:


Jesus wants us to go back to our first love and realize who we are living for and why. He loves us. He is patient with us. He is willing and able to use us for great things for His Kingdom. Do you fully grasp the love of Jesus Christ for you? If not, try returning to your first love.

Friends of Nazareth (FON) was formed in 2006 under the umbrella of Training in Mission Evangelism (T.I.M.E.), a 501 (c) (3) corporation located in Huntsville, Alabama. T.I.M.E. is a member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).

 

FON exists to serve the Nazareth Baptist School, a day school started by Southern Baptists in 1936 in our Lord's hometown. As one of the top rated schools by the Ministry of Education, it is the only K-12 evangelical school in Israel.

 

Our goal is to help the Nazareth Baptist School maintain its high credentials and provide Christian education to a greater number of Arab students from both Christian and Muslim families. To do this it is necessary to relocate the school.

 

All donations to FON are tax deductible to US taxpayers. FON never sells your name to any organization and it complies with all national and international tax laws.
