Message from the Dean: Dr. Jeremy Greer
In the Gospel that came to bear his name, Matthew recorded a simple command from Jesus:
“Follow me,” Jesus told him. This call set Matthew on a path of following Jesus that
changed his life direction, it reset his priorities, it reoriented his affections,
it stretched his thinking, and it demanded his allegiance.
In the Gospel that came to bear his name, Matthew recorded a simple command from Jesus: “Follow me,” Jesus told him. This call set Matthew on a path of following Jesus that changed his life direction, it reset his priorities, it reoriented his affections, it stretched his thinking, and it demanded his allegiance.
In light of Matthew’s experience, perhaps no better phrase than “follow me” describes the guiding principle of the Pruet School of Christian Studies. Yes, “follow me” is a charge applicable to every believer, but the Lord has appointed some to follow him down a particular path of service. Paul described the path this way: “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up” (Eph 4:11-12, NIV).
How about you? Does Jesus’ call on you to “follow me” entail a path of service? Does it involve equipping his people and building up the body of Christ? If so, we, the Pruet faculty, would love to journey alongside you in this season of your life on that path of following him. In fact, it is our own journey down the path of following him that has brought each of us to our present task and our great privilege: equipping the equippers.
So, come on all you equippers in training! There’s a path of following Jesus to walk into a life of service. Come walk it with us.
