"What are You Praying For?"Stuart Jones As children begin their educational trip through life, they face 13 years of school plus an additional year if they’re in preschool. Then college or vocational school could add two to four (or more) years. The learning process is not over as there is always something new to learn on the job. To continually grow in our chosen profession or in our current job, knowledge becomes a lifelong pursuit. Should the same not be true of our walk with the Lord? In Colossians 1:9b-10 (NLT) Paul tells us that he continually was praying for the members of the church at Colosse, that God would give them complete knowledge of His will and spiritual wisdom and understanding. The Scripture goes on to say “Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.” Just as we need always to pursue learning new things in our everyday secular lives, we need to pursue knowledge, spiritual wisdom and understanding in our Christian lives. We must never be satisfied with where we are on our walk with the Lord. Ask the senior saints in the church and they will tell you that they have so much yet to learn about their Lord and His will for their lives and so much yet to do to serve Him. Learning is a never-ending process. So is maturing as a Christian.
