A Master's Degree in Wisdom

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. ~ 1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Throughout life we're constantly learning and developing new skills. For example I'm a student studying for a Master's Degree in Wisdom. It will take a lifetime to achieve. My private tutor is the Holy Spirit and He leads me in my studies and directs my thoughts and prayers. I've been on this degree course for over 36 years. Indeed I have been blessed while on the course. I have a loving husband and family. Moreover I use my creative talents to give glory to Jesus. Each of us is studying the same degree course though we're all at different levels of attainment. Although there's much opposition to this degree course and sometimes I let the world distract me from my studies.

Course Overview

In addition it's a masters degree that requires a life time commitment of hand to hand combat through prayer.

However our only necessary reading materials are the 66 books penned by 40 different authors - the Bible.

Entry Requirements and Fees

  •  It's FREE!  - There are no fees for this degree course as Jesus paid your debt at Calvary.

Consequently a graduation ceremony will take place. In fact He'll give us a white robe and rewards will be given out. As a result we'll look back on all of our trials and realise that they were all mercies in disguise.

 

While it will be declared to all ...redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb, faithful and approved.
