Jesus is Sweeter

As I reflect on this past Training Conference, one student comes to mind the most. One of our female students has been co-leading an upperclassmen Bible study with me this school year. In the fall she took the “How to Lead a Bible Study” track at the Training Conference. She learned a lot at that point, and I’ve watched her this semester developing into a strong Bible study leader. Beyond equipping her to serve in this way, my prayer for her has been that Jesus would become sweeter to her. This semester our Bible study group has been going through Hebrews. For this spring training conference, I encouraged her to take the “Bible Survey” track, where they cover the entire story of the Bible. At the end of the weekend, she remarked to me, “I see why you chose Hebrews now!” She’s beginning to see why Jesus is better. Additionally, her desire to study the Bible is growing immensely. In our worship at the end of the training conference, she was brought to tears in singing to her Savior. What a joy it has been to see her drawing nearer to Christ!
