To the Christian Student In the Public School

You may be ostracized because of your heart for Jesus.

But stand firm on His promise that there is more to life than school and peer notoriety.  A life lived with passion and purpose for the Lord will receive the ultimate prize, rewards in heaven as you spend eternity with Him.

While I know the pain and ache of this life threatens to consume and seems to last forever, God promises that trouble here on earth is momentary and fleeting.

Consider yourself a modern day disciple, choosing to be brave when you are persecuted for your faith and being bold for Jesus no matter the cost.

Be selective.

Surround yourself with others who desire to live a life pleasing to the Lord and be selective about your friends.

While loving others and being Jesus is necessary, keep your close friends to a carefully chosen few.

Jesus had only twelve close confidants, and they were people He could count on and trusted with His life.

These were men with a deep passion for the Lord, who encouraged Him, prayed with Him, and were faithful even in death.

Choose your inner circle wisely, surrounding yourself with fellow believers to strengthen you in moments of temptation and to spur you on in your relationship with the Lord.

Be wise.

Cling to God’s truth as your anchor when the evil one attacks.

His dark and sinister spirit will bombard you with deceit and feed you lies to throw you off course.

He wants nothing more than for you to live defeated and to abandon your faith.

Soaking in God’s presence through prayer and reading His word will help you grow in wisdom and to discern truth among the lies.

Knowing those precious promises in God’s Word will help you be bold for Jesus and to be a light in a darkened world.

May your light be contagious and may others long to know Him because you lived with boldness and unwavering faith.  Have a wonderful school year.  I am praying for you!

Many blessings,

Sarah Ann
