As the Head of the Body, the Lord Jesus Christ has a unique and very personal curriculum of spiritual growth designed just for YOU. The Son of God, our Brother, is most able to instruct us, given that he is the only human being who ever got “Straight A’s” in the School of Hard Knocks.
Sad to say, the prevailing doctrine among Christians is that God tests us via sickness, tragedy, suffering, etc. God certainly does test us, but only by asking us to obey His Word, so that our trust in Him will grow. On the contrary, Satan tests us by asking us to disobey God’s Word.
One of the bright spots in school was when a teacher gave an OPEN BOOK TEST, though that was rare. The good news is that every test that God, the Principal, and Jesus, the Professor, give is an open book test. That being the case, it would be foolish to take any test with The Book closed, especially because there is an upcoming graduation ceremony, when degrees will be awarded. This exciting teaching will help you pass the test of life.
