We don’t worry because we know who our Father is, we know who our family is, and we know what our future is. We don’t worry. But we do become learners through this kind of situation. We have the responsibility to learn the lessons that the Lord is teaching us. You can take a look at your own life and examine where you are in regard to the things we’ve talked about. But if you look at them rightly, you see this not as a threat, but as an incredibly wonderful, promising opportunity to grow in grace and in the knowledge of Christ and become more like the Savior, more faithful to the Lord, more obedient, more useful to Him, more joyful, more the source of all that is good and godly than you were without this trial. We ought to be the shining lights in the midst of all of this. And when it’s done, if you have been a faithful mathētēs, a faithful learner or disciple, all these lessons will be for your good and His glory.~ John MacArthur
A Mighty Fortress Is Our God
If you have been a faithful (mathētēs), a faithful learner or
disciple, all these lessons will be for your good and His glory.
…and that’s a beautiful thing!
