Study...

...to show thyself approved unto God, a workmen that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Tim.2:15

The responsibility of every pastor, and of every believer...in every nation.  Lake Victoria Baptist College is training workmen to "rightly divide" the Word.

We're in the middle of the 2nd week of LVBC.  Last week Bill Brouwer taught through the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations, and then a pastoral class.  Two missionary wives, Tammy Brouwer and Paige Wagoner taught a pastor's wives class.  This week Greg Wagoner is teaching another pastoral class while Joas, a Tanzanian pastor, is teaching a basic Bible doctrines class.

LVBC meets twice a year for 2 weeks at a time.  In between sessions students are given homework including a daily Bible reading/prayer chart, 12 sermon/ lesson outlines to write.  They also record church attendance and how they served in their local church each week.  Last term the students had a class in "Inductive Bible study."  For homework they were given several long passages of scripture, they had to write out the meaning of each verse and how it can be applied today.

As I grade homework pages and sermon outlines, I'm challenged myself.  How well am I STUDYING to rightly divide the Word of Truth?
