Christ's schools!

(from Octavius Winslow's "The Preciousness
of Christ's Sympathy With Our Infirmities")

In the world there are various schools for different
branches of knowledge and science, where the principles
and systems peculiar to each one are alone taught.

Christ has His various schools for His disciples.

There is,
the school of correction,
the school of trial,
the school of sorrow,
the school of temptation,
the school of active service,
the school of patient endurance.

In one, or all of these schools, Jesus is instructing
His disciples on earth, teaching them the particular
lessons, and bringing them into the experience of
the particular truths found in to other way.

The school of suffering is also Christ school, in which He
is teaching, disciplining, and training you for heaven.
