To Be Like Jesus

Daily Devotional

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Proverbs 4:5, NKJV.

There is no time now to fill the mind with false ideas of what is called higher education. There can be no higher education than that which comes from the Author of truth. The Word of God is to be our study. We are to educate our children in the truths found therein. It is an inexhaustible treasure; but men and women fail to find this treasure because they do not search until it is within their possession. In this Word is found wisdom, unquestionable and inexhaustible wisdom, that did not originate in the finite mind, but in the infinite mind.

When men and women are willing to be instructed as little children, when they submit wholly to God, they will find in the Scriptures the science of education. When teachers and students enter Christ's school, to learn from Him, they will talk intelligently of higher education, because they will understand that it is that knowledge which enables people to understand the essence of science.

Those who would seek successfully for the hidden treasure must rise to higher pursuits than the things of this world. Their affections and all their capabilities must be consecrated to this search. Men and women of piety and talent catch views of eternal realities, but often they fail to understand, because the things that are seen eclipse the glory of the unseen. By many human wisdom is thought to be higher than the wisdom of the divine Teacher, and God's lesson book is looked upon as old-fashioned, so much so indeed as to be thought tame and stale. But by those who have been vivified by the Holy Spirit it is not so regarded. They see the priceless treasure, and would sell all to buy the field that contains it....

Those who make the Word of God their study, who dig for the treasures of truth, will appreciate the weighty principles taught, and will digest them. As a result, they will be imbued with the Spirit of Christ; and by beholding, they will become changed into His likeness. They will teach like disciples who have been sitting at the feet of Jesus, who have accustomed themselves to learn of Him, that they might know Him whom to know aright is life eternal.--The Review and Herald, July 3, 1900.

Learning to Walk by Faith - Conversations with Don MacLafferty

After a difficult early-morning conversation with God, Don MacLafferty gave up his position as a pastor and became an unpaid volunteer, willing to go, in faith, wherever God led. If you feel hungry for a deeper more faith filled walk with God, you don't want to miss this gripping testimony. You might also want to read MacLafferty's book titled, "Live like Elijah!" This inspiring "Conversation" was filmed with host John Bradshaw for "It is Written," and gives us a small glimpse into the amazing faith journey that God has led Pastor Don and his wife April to embrace. Perhaps, it is a journey that God might be calling YOU to embrace as well.
