Dear Christian educators,
On this Good Friday, we pause to give thanks to our faithful God Who gave His only Son that we may have eternal life. Think of all the generations that have existed since Christ until now. As the God of generations, He has sustained His church throughout the ages. The good news is that our next generation has its own leaders rising up to bring glory to God.
Each day during this season of Lent, I will post one verse and pray it with you. Consider saying the verse in your quiet time and praying it also. You may use the same prayer or try your own. Each day until Easter (except Sundays) there will be a new post that contains: a verse, a small reflection, a prayer using the Scripture and an image. Feel free to share the images because I made them with the Bible Lens app and took all the pictures. What a creative God we serve!
Psalm 100:5 English Standard Version (ESV)
5 For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
Do you ever ponder this high calling of teaching is to touch the next generation? Every educator will make an impact. We can only hope that it is kingdom impact for their souls. Making an impact on the next generation is critical to passing along our heritage. One of the ways we honor the next generation is with a ceremony called, Honor the Grads. Two seniors from a set amount of high schools are honored because they walked their walk with Christ through high school. The best part is that they are chosen by their peers. The students are invited to a ceremony where they give a testimony, tell about their future plans and share a favorite scripture. The students receive a medallion, a certificate and a $100 scholarship. This is one of the the greatest impacts on the next generation we have been a part of in the Central FL area. For more information, check out our Honor the Grads page.
You are so good, Lord. Your steadfast love endures forever and Your faithfulness is to all the generations. Lord as we anticipate Your coming we yearn for the next generation to be whole-hearted for You. There are so many young people who are so in love with You. I love to hear their testimonies and take great strength in the next generation. Thank You for being a God of the generations. Thank You for allowing us to impact the next generation in our schools. We love You Lord and thank You for this gift in the faithful name of Jesus. Amen.
