Realizing the difficulty of the subject he taught, the professor allowed the students to have a sheet of paper having a specific size during the exam and to write on it whatever they liked. Each student searched for thin-pointed pens to write as much as they could of the laws and summary of some chapter of the subject. On the day of the exam, one of the students went having a white sheet of paper. As long as he was seated, he put it on the ground beside him. All people were observing him in astonishment. When it was time to receive the exam sheet, a young man specialized in the subject entered and stood above the white sheet. The student read the questions and the young man answered. One of the exam supervisors came and asked them about what they were doing.
“The professor allowed us to write the data on a paper to take it during the exam.” The student said. “ This young man who knows the data came with me. He does not stand outside the edges of the paper. He knows all the required information.”
In this world, we do not need to write information on a sheet of paper to carry during the exam. What we need is to carry the person of Lord Jesus Christ. Through him, we achieve great success. He alone can answer all questions. He is the One who will justify us on the great day of the Lord.
I have nothing to carry to You on the great day of the Lord but You.
You are my lawyer and defender.
You alone justify me and hide all my weaknesses.
A Chorus of Three Trees
