"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16
All over our area, teachers and students are going back to school. What an awesome opportunity every teacher and student has this year to make a difference in someone else's life! As church members and community members, we should support our schools in every way possible. We can lift them up in prayer, and we can be there to support their events. Our schools are battlegrounds...battlegrounds of education, morality, and more. And Satan loves moving in and destroying our children and their futures. Jesus said it in John 10:10..."The thief comes to steal and kill and destroy." But Jesus goes on to say..."I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." Teachers and students, you have the opportunity to take the victory that Jesus has already won with you to the schools. As, Dr. Tony Evans has said before, "You don't fight FOR victory; you fight FROM victory." As Christ followers, you have the Light in you. Matthew 5:16 says, "Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Glorify God in your friendships. Glorify God in your classrooms. Glorify God on the ball fields. Let your light shine!!!
