Philippians 1:9-10 NIV
Anyone like going to school? Most of us are happy to leave our school years behind. No one wants to go back to being an awkward 13 year old! Even though we may not want to go back to the school years, I think all of us would say that it was worth it. We learned a lot, matured, and even gained wisdom in the process! One of the gifts of education is the ability to discern right and wrong.
Even though we are not technically in school right now, we are in the school of the Spirit. Through the power of the Spirit we are able to discern spiritual matters and situations. Here Paul encourage the Philippians to grow more and more in knowledge so that they would be able to discern (or know), “what is best . . . “ Are you growing in knowledge today? How’s your discernment? If you want more knowledge and growth in your faith you must be in the school of the Spirit.
Consider your schooling in the Spirit today - what are you doing to grow closer to the Spirit?
