Ready for school? Don’t forget to be yourself

For many of you reading this blog, “Back to School” is where you are going in the next few weeks. Whether a private or public school, high school. college or university, you may find yourself surrounded by those who do not believe in or love the Saviour.

You may be tempted to join the party scene (rebelliously indulge your sinful desires, James 1:14-15),

to downplay your faith (hide it under a basket, Matt. 5:14-16),

to keep an open mind (question the only eternal truth, 1 John 1:1-4),

or to chase your dreams (pursue selfish ambitions, James 3:13-18) instead of running after God’s commands.

As you consider these potential temptations, you may feel weak, unable to stand, desperate for God’s help. Good. If so, may the words of the Lord to Joshua encourage you today: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9).
