Tom Schreiner’s words of advice to Christian Scholars

Tom Schreiner’s words of advice to Christian Scholars December 4, 2011

I should have gone to the B&H breakfast at ETS, because Tom Schreiner gave some godly words of advice to young Christian scholars about the exclusivity of faith in Christ, the dangers of seeking the praise of others, the need for humility, and why we have to live like Jesus. Pretty dense for a 15 minute devotional! Listen to it at Denny Burk‘s blog or else read the whole thing at the Gospel Coalition. I leave you with Schreiner’s words:

“Finally, we live as if Jesus is the only way if we are thankful people. As Psalm 36 says, those who know God “feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights.” Believers drink from the living water that Jesus gives us; we feast on the beauty of God; we find him to be our joy, our meat and drink; we are happy and thankful because of his love. We know that there is nothing greater than knowing Christ. Everything else is dung in comparison.”
