REASON #29 - Sunday School Is Important Because Each Person’s Life Needs To Be Based On Jesus Christ And The Bible
All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right. It is God’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for every good thing God wants us to do. (II Timothy 3:16 & 17)
What is life? An anonymous writer penned the following line, based on James 4:14…
Life is a mystery. Life itself is thus. Our earthly life, likewise, is often mysterious.
“Life is a gracious gift from God. There is nothing we count more precious than life.
Life is a race. It involves preparation, struggle and reward.
Life is a journey. This speaks of observations, experiences and destination.
Life is uncertain. This is true as to its content, as well as its length.
Life is brief. It is like a vapor, the flower, the grass, etc.
Life is eternal. Death does not end all.”
Harold W. Ruopp observed the following about human life. He said, “Life does not require us to make good; it asks only that we give our best on each new level of experience.” And, isn’t that what God expects of us, too? None of us is perfect…none of us will ever be perfect, but God does expect that each of us will try to do our very best each day as we strive to live for Him.
But, how can you know what God expects of you and how He wants you to live? Well, there is a book that has all the answers and that book is the Bible! But, is just reading the Bible enough? Even in modern translation forms, the Bible is not always that easy to understand. That’s why it is also important for all persons of all ages to come together with others of similar age and interests in Sunday school. Sunday school…it is real learning for real life! Check it out!
