HS: What is the main reason for coming to SOT?
Student: What a question..! Hmm… To learn more about God’s Word?
Student: To learn how to serve God better?
HS: What is the purpose of you enrolling into SOT?
Student (Gets it): To better understand character of God(‘s loving nature) and learn to love and minister to His people.
Student (peace of heart).
In my opinion, despite all the information and knowledge we learn in SOT even including all the signs and wonders we’ve witnessed, the main purpose of and equipping through SOT still boils back down to the Two Great Commandments (and CHC DNA); Loving God wholeheartedly and loving people fervently. SOT serves to help us to achieve the two.
Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
Don’t forget why you do what you do (serve)! Don’t lose track of why you’re in SOT!
