Student of Life. Advocate for Serious Joy in Christ
The tagline says it all.
In many ways I am a student of life. First of all, I have literally been a student my whole life. At completion of Year 12 I jumped ship to university, where I currently study.
But when I move into a full time job, I doubt my tagline will lose relevance. I will forever be learning in this life. I don’t boast a ton of knowledge about most things. But despite this, there is something I can strongly advocate.
There’s a lot of things I find joy in doing. Cycling and running are up there. I live pretty close to the beach and love it. Hanging out with mates over rocket league, coffee, sport. As much as I like these activities, they are but temporary joys. As much as I love to do these things, they don’t produce serious and lasting joy.
Cut to the chase – there’s nothing temporary about God.
Nothing beats a relationship with the God of the universe. Nothing beats a life of real purpose beyond the grave. Nothing produces true, lasting joy like having this secure hope (Hebrews 6:19). A glory in store, a destiny prepared, an inheritance reserved.
Now that’s something I can hang my hat on.
