“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on [a] hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:13-16).
“Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest” (Joshua 1:9b).
Students, have your classmates heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Would you like some help in sharing it with them?
At New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, we’d invite you to participate in Bring Your Bible to School Day on Tuesday, October 5. Bring Your Bible to School Day “is designed to empower [students] to express [their] belief in the truth of God’s Word—and to do so in a respectful way that demonstrates the love of Christ. Participation is voluntary and student-directed—meaning it’s completely up to students, Christian clubs and youth groups to sign up online and then lead the activities in their school.”
Bring Your Bible to School Day offers Christian students a great opportunity to be a public witness for Jesus. The Lord can use your participation in Bring Your Bible to School Day to spread the Good News to other students, and also to encourage Christian students to be bold in speaking out about their faith.
Bring Your Bible to School Day is sponsored by Focus on the Family. The event website offers a wealth of helpful information, including a sign-up page; answers to frequently asked questions; suggestions on how to respond to challenges; sections especially geared toward parents, teachers, and pastors; information on legal rights; and downloadable resources. It should be noted that the information on legal rights is designed for students in public schools.
Students, let your light shine! Sign up today and participate in Bring Your Bible to School Day on October 5.
