Christ Will Teach the Redeemed
they shall be all taught of God. John 6:45
In the school of Christ students never
graduate. Among the pupils are both the old and the young. Those who give heed
to the instructions of the Divine Teacher constantly advance in wisdom,
refinement, and nobility of soul, and thus they are prepared to enter that
higher school, where advancement will continue throughout eternity. . . .
To dwell forever in this home of the
blest, to bear in soul, body, and spirit, not the dark traces of sin and the
curse, but the perfect likeness of our Creator, and through ceaseless ages to
advance in wisdom, in knowledge and holiness, ever exploring new fields of
thought, ever finding new wonders and new glories, ever increasing in capacity
to know and to enjoy and to love, and knowing that there is still beyond us joy
and love and wisdom infinite--such is the object to which the Christian hope is
In the world to come Christ will lead the
redeemed beside the river of life and will teach them wonderful lessons of
truth. He will unfold to them the mysteries of nature. They will see that a
master hand holds the world in position. They will behold the skill displayed
by the great Artist in coloring the flowers of the field, and will learn of the
purposes of the merciful Father, who dispenses every ray of light, and with the
holy angels the redeemed will acknowledge in songs of grateful praise God's
supreme love to an unthankful world. Then it will be understood that "God
so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
He will impart rich stores of
knowledge. He will unravel mysteries in the providences of God which in this
life we are unable to understand.

We must get an education here that will
enable us to live with God through the eternal ages. The education we begin
here will be perfected in heaven. We will only just enter a higher grade.
