I had the privilege of spending a number of my formative years studying the Scriptures at the Moody Bible Institute. There, I developed not only a deep affection for the Word of God, but also for strolling the alluring streets of downtown Chicago.
Heading east of campus toward LaSalle Boulevard, I would regularly pass the Institute’s grand stone archway to read the sole verse etched on the wall:
“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV)
This was why I came to Bible College.
