Most of us acknowledge that God has a plan for our lives. Knowing what it is can sometimes be more difficult. But it need not be. Simply put, if you are walking with the Lord and letting His Word dwell in you richly (Col 3:16), then you can do whatever you want! The decision is yours. That is what the psalmist says: "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart" (Ps 37:4). He will put His desires into your heart, giving you the right desires.

Let me suggest a few practical questions to help bring your desires into focus:

  1. Do you have a desire to teach people God's Word?
  2. If married, is your wife supportive?
  3. Does your pastor or people in your home church endorse your desires?
  4. Has God opened a door for you to go to seminary?

If you can answer yes to these questions, then you need to consider The Master's Seminary. As you will discover, TMS is an excellent place to be trained and sent out into ministry. You will experience first hand a seminary that is passionate about expository preaching and character development. You will receive counsel, encouragement, and instruction from the faculty—in the classroom, on the campus, or over lunch. You will find a seminary that stands by their motto, "We train men as lives depended on it."
