“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord
And whose trust is the Lord,
For he will be like a tree planted by the water,
That extends its roots by a stream
And will not fear when the heat comes;
But its leaves will be green,
And it will not be anxious in a year of drought
Nor cease to yield fruit.”

Jeremiah 17:7-8Small format logo - transparent

“So with integration in Christian education. It is the living union of its subject matter, administration, and even of its personnel, with the eternal and infinite pattern of God’s truth. This, as we have already said, is the heart of integration and the crux of the  problem. . . Christian significance of what we do is determined not just by the thing itself; it depends also on the manner of its doing. . . it concerns the ‘how’ rather than the ‘what’ of an activity.”

Frank Gaebelein, from 1952 lecture series at Dallas Theological Seminary, became The Pattern of God’s Truth, 1954.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against the house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell–and great was its fall.”

“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”

Or, as the ESV says, “complete, equipped for every good work.” This person is “completely outfitted.”

And, Christian school is a “good work.”
