What is it for a teacher to teach the texts and lessons of old, to revisit each year such things with new faces.
It is to visit upon old friends with new; it is to find that in a community of genuine learners and learning, indeed all things are made new. It is to prepare for a time when we shall behold the Everlasting youth of the Ancient of Days.
We need have no fear that we shall outgrow the age discipleship, if only we humble ourselves and permit our teacher to show his face even in the most unexpected of places.
And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 18:2-3).
