Giving Tuesday
 
December is a month in which many people make charitable gifts to non-profit organizations such as IRBS Theological Seminary. Since 2012, the first Tuesday of December has been promoted around the world as Giving Tuesday, a day for generous donors to support the causes they hold dear. We are joining this movement, asking our friends to consider a thoughtful gift to help achieve our goals. On December 1, 2020, would you consider making a contribution to IRBS Theological Seminary so that we may be able to further prepare men to serve you and your family? Every penny counts!
 
On behalf of the Seminary, let me thank you for your generous contributions in the past year. It has helped us continue to build on a sure foundation. Will you join me in praying as Giving Tuesday approaches, that God will open the hearts of his people to join IRBS with financial support? And would you also prayerfully consider how you might personally participate in the coming years?
 
1 Thessalonians 5:18
 
"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
 
Our Gift to You

The coming Advent season is a period when Christians reflect upon the goodness of God in sending the long-promised Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
 
His incarnation is so foundational to the faith once delivered to the saints that we believe there is great profit in contemplating God’s purposes promised and fulfilled in his Son.
 
We have asked several members of the faculty of IRBS Theological Seminary to contribute to this ebook to help you meditate on the momentous nature of the incarnation. We hope that these will deepen your love for the Savior.

The instruction at IRBS Theological Seminary that I have received thus far has been nothing short of transformative. I am thankful that the professors go out of their way to provide a valuable curriculum and give us close access to them personally. The academic rigor is very purposeful in preparing us men for the work of the ministry. I am constantly challenged to consider our Triune God in deeper ways that I haven't yet pondered. Additionally, along the way, I see the knowledge gaps being filled time and time again. I am thankful for the privilege of being permitted to sit under this instruction.

Article Image The apostle Paul tells us, “In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thess. 5:18). On this side of glory, there are times where our faithfulness to this command is difficult. Other times, our thankfulness comes more easily. When I consider my time at IRBS Theological Seminary, and particularly the faculty under which I am privileged to study, thankfulness and joy fill my heart and mind. The professors at IRBS Theological Seminary are not only my educators, but have become my mentors. They are not only tremendous scholars, but they are faithful and godly men. One thing I am particularly thankful for is that all of these men are serving and laboring in the local church as pastors or teachers. The quality of their scholarship collectively is, in my opinion, second to none. But, what really sets this faculty apart in my mind is their faithfulness in serving Christ in his church. Their commitment and love for Christ and his church is demonstrated by their sacrificial use of their gifts and time for the strengthening and expansion of his kingdom on earth. I am thankful for the privilege and blessing it is to learn from these men, and pray that one day I may imitate them as they imitate Christ in loving and serving his bride.
