To me the school year “feels started” when we have the first chapel of the fall semester. It’s always a packed house, and I’m not sure anything encourages me more than when our students come together to worship.
I really miss our weekly chapels during the summer, so glad tomorrow is almost here.
I’m speaking for the first chapel, as I always do, using the text of our Belhaven College verse of the year. Become mature and measure up to the full stature of Christ. Ephesians 4:13
I pray God will challenge us to think about what it means to measure up to the full stature of Christ. I’m using the short video “My King” to remind us who Christ is, and who we are called to be. This is our standard.
Through the transforming power of God we can measure up to the full stature of Christ by living each day, just as Jesus lived on earth — Jesus spent time building his inner strength, so that outwardly, he could reveal the nature of God through what he did.
