Our studying at the Masters’ Program of Vision University has come to an end.
I have defended my thesis… received my Master’s degree… but I studied not to get a degree… I wanted to acquire knowledge, to learn Scripture truths, to gain a better understanding of many doctrines and to have more confidence in what I have already knew and believed in.
What have I personally got out of it? The richness and wisdom of the depths of God's Word, the eternal foundation on Jesus Christ our Rock. “He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.” (Luke 6:48).
Was it important for me? Undoubtedly, otherwise there would be no desire to dig so deep as I wrote each course paper and did research for my thesis.
Was it difficult? Yes, but it was worth it. The treasure I acquired changed me and my ministry to the Lord and to people.
Studying at Masters’ Program.
These were unforgettable lessons on the study of the depths of the topics covered. The materials presented at the lectures encouraged delving deeper, literally digging through mountains of materials on given topics.
Themes of course works were so well matched that each course work encouraged me in serious study and reflection that has enriched me by many revelations and skills, and because of this research I became established in many revelations received earlier.
Has my ministry changed? Yes, I am now more than ever trusting in Him, seeking knowledge and understanding and help from Him. It became easier for me to correct and help people get on the right path when they are going astray in their reasoning.
Has my character changed? Yes, and for that I am especially thankful! I did not complain when something went wrong but entrusted it all into the Lord's hands with joy. God destroyed the perfectionist complex that I had. Grades have ceased to have its value for me as a measure of my person but it became an estimate of how much effort I have put in, how much I have labored over a given topic, how much I gained, and what has changed in me and my ministry to the Lord.
Once again I want to thank you for your work, for teachers, for the dean and a special thanks for my curator who is the very best in the world, who did not abandon me when my previously appointed curator refused to work with me and was always patient with me, believing in me until the end.
THANK YOU! I wish you God's blessings and new victories in the LORD’s work!
