The Science of All Sciences
For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. – Colossians 1:19-20
The science of redemption is the science of all sciences; the science that is the study of the angels and of all the intelligences of the unfallen worlds; the science that engages the attention of our Lord and Saviour; the science that enters into the purpose brooded in the mind of the Infinite—“kept in silence through times eternal” (Romans 16:25, R.V.); the science that will be the study of God’s redeemed throughout endless ages. This is the highest study in which it is possible for man to engage. As no other study can, it will quicken the mind and uplift the soul. – Education, 126
Do you have a degree? Did you go to school? Have you learned a skill? All these things are good, but nothing can compare to the study of the science of salvation. It is easy to say, ‘Oh, I know John 3:16’ and claim that you understand salvation. And while, yes, salvation can be outlined in simple terms, yet there is a depth in its study, that requires a deeper look. Diving into this study, thinking through the things that Jesus accomplished through His life, death, and resurrection, and appreciating how it relates to the great controversy theme, the sanctuary, the judgment, and most importantly, to our everyday lives; all this will help you to fall in love with Jesus increasingly more as you go deeper and deeper.
Will you choose today to engage in this science of all sciences? Will you set aside time for the most important study of all eternity, how to win souls for God’s Kingdom?
