An attractive young college student was doing well in all her classes except Chemistry. She found that to be the most difficult class she had ever had. But she just had to pass, or she would lose her scholarship. So the student made an appointment to see her professor in his office.
“What can I do for you?” he asked her.
“I just have to pass your class,” she said. “But I am really having a hard time. I will do anything, if you will pass me.”
“Anything?” asked the professor. “You are willing to do anything to pass my class?”
“Oh, yes,” she replied. “Use your imagination. I am willing to do anything you want, one time, if you will give me a passing grade.”
Then, as she began to undress, the professor stopped her.
“Are you sure you mean this? You are willing to do anything one time, in order to pass my class?” he asked.
“Yes, I said that. Now just tell me what you want me to do.”
To that, the professor responded with one word: “Study!”
The Bible says we will face final exams one day. It is called the Great White Throne Judgment. But if you want to pass the exam then, you need to prepare now.
“Study to show yourself approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed” (2 Timothy 2:15).
