One thing I want to consistently model for my students is that learning is not something that should only happen during a season of life (school) but is something that should be a life pattern. After all, given the dizzying pace of change all around us, students will need to be self-starting learners in order to adapt to changes in the job market. In addition, learning brings joy and excitement to the life we have been given by God.
Periodically in FaithEdTech I will be sharing new things that I have learned. It is my hope that you will enjoy reading about my new learning but that it will also be inspiring to readers to embrace similar growth and to SHARE what has been learned with others.
My new learning over the past few days has come from my current deep study and review of Isaiah chapters 24 & 25 in the Bible. I knew Isaiah from the prophesies of a coming Savior — prophesies that are regularly shared this time of year. However, my new learning is that Isaiah’s words also speak powerfully to the end times. In fact, there is probably as much content about the future of the world as their is about a coming Savior. Chapter 24 vividly describes the fate of this world under judgment and the succeeding chapter provides a glorious view of heaven and the provision God provides for all believers. Isaiah 24:6-8 depicts the bounty that is ours as faithful believers in God:
On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine — the best of meats and the finest of wines. On this mountain he will destroy the should that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth. The Lord has spoken.
There is SO much to which we can look forward to when we embrace God through faith in His Son Jesus Christ. No matter what your cares might be today be encouraged that the best is yet to come!
I am very thankful for Isaiah chapters 24 & 25 and for the comfort and joy that comes through new learning. What is your recent new learning?
