Education, A Hidden Treasure

Author: Josué Mora Peña

Education, especially Christian education, is very important for everybody. Even to the adults who think school is only for children and youth.  I was listening to the news the other night where people in their 40’s are searching for another career.  Among the Catholic Church several of them are responding the call of God to serve in the ministry.

We need to be open to growth and learning since we are Christ’s disciples.  Do you know what this means, it means, to put it bluntly, to go back to school, to learn, to grow, to mature, to excel, to be more than what we are right now, to have the desire to live the Christian life to its fullness and in order to do that we need to go back to school.

Someone might say: I don’t want to go back to school, (…and young people, this is not for you, so please don’t listen to me).  Well, maybe you don’t have to go back to school.  You’re already a mature person, you might say I’m working full time, I don’t have time, I have a family to take care of…and you’re right, so don’t go back to school.  Besides, educations nowadays is very costly, but remember, ignorance is much, much more expensive than education.

I want you to listen to verses 3 and 4, “Yes, beg for knowledge; plead for insight.  Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure.”  These are powerful words.  Maybe I don’t want to go back to school but I do want to have knowledge and understanding, I want to know where I come from and where I’m going.  I want to know about my spiritual condition before God.  I want to know that there’s a place for me in heaven and not in Hell.  I want to know God better in order for me to love Him more and serve Him better.  Keep in mind that “serves better who prepares better.”

I don’t know about you friends, but I want to be rich.  There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be wealthy.  Many people in the Bible were very rich.  They had riches in abundance and we have a God who is willing to make us rich, vewy, vewy, rich.  But those people who were rich were men and women who obeyed and serve God.  The kind of reaches that God has for you is in being knowledgeable because then we’ll know how to become affluent.

We are on a lifelong journey of faith—always growing and changing, teaching and learning.  We must continue to grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  And again, this is for the adults, don’t go to school, but do come to Sunday School.  It is for your own benefit.

Growing in faith involves increasing our knowledge of God and our Christian life, being committed to Him allowing Him to transform our lives.  It also involves participating in the spiritual disciplines and rendering acts of service.  The only way to increase our knowledge of our Powerful God is through Sunday School, Bible studies, small groups, Bible reading and praying constantly.  Then, you will find the hidden treasure God has for you.

The church has many ministries for her members and you need to get involved in some of them.  There is a need for Sunday School teachers, several substitutes, people to serve in the Christian Education department.  We should be involved in missions; you could become a tutor for someone in our church or in the neighborhood.  We need people, people, and more people.

A growing church is an educated church.  We’re supposed to know the meaning of salvation, regeneration, justification, adoption, sanctification and many more beautiful doctrines of the Bible.  We need wisdom and knowledge and we find them only in the school of God.  The secular schools will teach you how to survive in this world.  The school of God will show you the way to heaven and how to escape eternal damnation. Think about this.

Proverbs 4.5-7 says, “Get wisdom, get understanding, don’t forget it; neither decline from the words of my mouth.  Don’t forsake it and it shall preserve you, love it and it shall keep you.  Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom; and with all your getting get understanding.”  You need to unearth that hidden treasure.  Don’t deprive yourself of all God’s blessings and riches.  Do you want to find that hidden treasure?  It’s here in the Bible.  It’s been here all the time.  Your Sunday school teachers will help you unearth it.  Don’t wait any longer.
