No More Sunday School!!

Before anyone thinks I've gone off the deep end, I'm not advocating an end of Sunday School. Rather, I'm saying I'm fleeing Sunday School Christianity.

This weekend at my college we held a teen camp. I was one of the counselors, but I think the sessions may have had as much of an impact on me as on anyone. One thing the speaker talked about several times were "Sunday School Answers."

"Is God good?"
"Yes."

"Is God in control?"
"Yes."

We learn these things in Sunday School. We know all the right answers ... but there are some people who don't allow these truths past their heads and into their hearts.

It seems I'm really learning a lot about that this semester. In my last post, I talked about trusting even in the hard times. If someone asked me about a year ago if God is always good, I would have given them the Sunday School answer "yes." I believed it, but I hadn't majorly experienced the truth of it in my heart. I hadn't clung to it even when life was terribly confusing and I hurt.

Now I have.

The more I start really living this Christian life, the more I want to go deeper. I don't only want the answers, I want the life. I know God...

...and I want to know Him more!

"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent" (John 17:3).
