reason 4 of 5 for back2school



Stuart and Patrick County.  Danville and Pittsylvania County.  Henry County and Martinsville.  And beyond.  Today I share reason 4 of 5 of why we continue to do back2school every year, and that reason is that we have been called by God to do this.  It our obligation.  It is our responsibility.  It is our duty.  It is also our honor and joy to complete the task that God has given us.

Mark 9:42  NLT
But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone hung around your neck.

John 8:12  NLT
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”

We have to shine our light for Jesus.  When you shine a light, you let others see something.  Helping someone see we help them miss some of the pitfalls and dangers of life.  Leading someone in the right direction will that that one and others.

By serving students we are leading them and their families to know God.  This is our calling as Christians and as a church.  We cannot take this for granted or disregard it.

May our example help others know Jesus who will in turn help others know Jesus.  All of this happens because we do what He tells us to do.

Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.
