Enrollment in Jesus’ school of discipleship is open to anyone who desires to walk no longer as a heathen. Living in the gruesome spiritual state of darkness, ignorance, blindness, and lewdness does not have to be permanent.
Your enrollment is completed when “you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus” (Ephesians 4:21). Obedience to the gospel—the word of truth spoken in love—purifies your soul through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.
Once your enrollment is completed, your ongoing assignment is the putting off the sinful conduct of the old man (Ephesians 4:22), the renewal of the spirit of your mind (Ephesians 4:23), and the putting on the new man created according to God in true righteousness and holiness (Ephesians 4:24).
This curriculum is strenuous and perfectly aligned with divine standards. All disciples in the academy are promised they will learn Christ if they vigorously apply themselves and persevere to graduation. Every successful graduate of the academy has enjoyed an abundant entrance into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
