• Christ and Church Life and Building Spirit and Bride


    As a lover of Christ and a pursuer of truth, I write down my joys, memories and reflections.

    May God lead us all into the secret of His presence, and build us into the oneness of His body in love.

Stanford Medical School Graduation 2012

Yesterday I had the privilege to attend the commencement of Stanford Medical School. Having been a college student, I know how difficult and selective to get into medical school, and not to mention medical school of Stanford University. As witnessing the graduating class walking into the site, I saw laughters and tears, and heard cheers and claps. This group of people are among the most talented young people in the world, and they earned this degree by many years of hard working and dedication. Their  accomplishment is truly phenomenal, and a bright future awaits them. I truly admire and respect this group of remarkable people. As the they walked into the site, I felt there is distinct line between them and me; our paths have parted and maybe I will never graduate from Stanford Medical School.

As I compare the Stanford Medical School and the Kingdom of God, the former is highly selective and hard to get in, the latter is free to get in and all welcoming; the former requires hard work during the process, the latter is all by grace, no work but all enjoyment.

Romans 4:4-5
Now to the one who works, his wages are not accounted according to grace, but according to what is due. But to the one who does not work, but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted as righteousness.

Romans 11:6
But if by grace, it is no longer out of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace.

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; Not of works that no one should boast.

If it were up to you, what would you choose?
