Perspectives in Covenant Education – March 1976

The March 1976 edition of Perspectives in Covenant Education is a trove of timeless treasures.  You don’t want to miss Dr. Dwight Monsma’s article “Parental Education” as he builds on what Rev. Engelsma wrote in the October 1975 issue for parents. Biblically based and thoroughly reformed, the heart of this article is its practical implications ...

KEPT IN CHRIST – August 9

There are times when a child of God is upon the mountain top of faith. There are also times when weakness of faith manifests itself. These two are in our lives because we still have the old man of sin until the day of our death. The new man in Christ will reveal himself; but the old man of sin will also at times be in control of our thinking, willing, and doing. When David cried out in Psalm 27, "Whom shall I fear? Of whom shall I be afraid?" he was on the mountain top of faith. But weakness of faith revealed itself when he stated in verses 7, 8, "Hear, 0 Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy upon me, and answer me. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, thy face, Lord, will I seek." Our versification has it thus: Lord, hear me when I pray, And answer me in grace; Oft as I hear Thee say, Come ye and seek My face, My lips and heart their answer speak, Thy face, Jehovah, will I seek. Here David still reveals faith in God. But he is not re-vealing the confidence he expressed in verse 1 of this psalm. Now he is crying for help and voicing a measure of fear. Nevertheless there is an important truth here, namely, what David had stated in verse 5 in these words: "In time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me." No, he was not now on the mountain top of faith; but he does still reveal faith in God. For he prays to God, seeks His mercy, and expresses a desire to seek God's face. When Satan sent powerful waves in ...

Why Teach? is meant to be an encouragement to our young people to prayerfully consider teacher. Just as Hannah prayed for a child whom she could give to the Lord to be a Godly leader for Isarel, we ask that Godly parents promote as much as possible to calling of being a teacher in our Protestant Reformed schools.
