Mobile U

Many of us are strapped for time and we’re trying to find ways to get the most out of our 24 hours. Since you can’t add a 25th hour to your day, it’s important you make the greatest use of your time.

With so many things on your agenda, one of the things you might often neglect to do is to continually educate yourself (if you’re not already going to school). Lifelong learning is an important aspect to growing in your position and further shaping your perspective and understanding.

One of the ways you might incorporate lifelong learning is by using your travel (bus/car/walking) and/or exercise time as your own Mobile University (Mobile U). At Mobile U, you have the opportunity to read the bible or a good book, listen to an audio bible, or receive great church leadership teachings via podcasts or online videos.

There’s a great wealth of information within your reach for free (or a small fee) and with a little effort, you can start your own Mobile U!

Acts 20:35I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Around the world and throughout the halls of academia, one of the basic tools for learning is the textbook. For some college students, college books are often more expensive than the course itself.

As you complete your classes and begin to consider what to do with your books, please consider giving your books away to another student.

Now, it’s your right to sell your books, but you never know what someone else might be going through. Your giving might be the answer someone prayed for.

Lifelong Learners

Proverbs 23:12Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.

After years of public school (college, etc.), the last thing many people want to do is read and study. As disciples of Jesus Christ, you’ll learn that a lifetime of learning will be extremely beneficial in remaining faithful and committed in your walk with Him.

Reading, meditation, and study are just a few ways you can grow in knowledge, understanding, and find success in the Lord (Joshua 1:8; Psalm 119:104 ; Proverbs 24:3-4).

You might not need to attend Seminary or some other formal training, but you can:

1. read/meditate on/study the Bible

2. read Christian books, magazines, etc.

3. attend conferences and seminars

4. volunteer in a church department of education (i.e. Sunday School)

Finding the Message

Proverbs 4:7Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

In reading the bible, it’s important to discover and understand the message each writer presented. As you gain a greater understanding of each biblical book, you’ll have the ability to not only assemble the entirety of God’s message within its proper context, but also find applicable passages for your life and others.

Below are a few questions for you to consider as you study the bible. Questions like the ones below and others can help you understand the basis and proper context of each biblical book:

WHO? – Who is the book written to? Who are the people illustrated in the book?

WHAT? – What are the cultures/people surrounding the timeframe of the book? What message is the author trying to communicate?

Attending seminary is a tremendous experience and blessing to ministers of the gospel. As students traverse their way through academia, there are a few pointers for their travels:

1. Be open minded.  In the seminary setting, you have an opportunity to engage in conversations with people that may not be of your same race, cultural background, tradition, or affiliation.  You have an opportunity to see Christianity from a different perspective.  You may not agree with everything you see, hear, or read, but you don’t have to become controversial or argumentative (Proverbs 15:1, 28; Philippians 2:14-16).  Voice your opinion, back it up with scripture (if applicable), and invite comments and questions.  Be approachable.
