When we decide to make Jesus the leader of our lives, He commissions us to serve as living testimonies to others. This means God has assigned you to your school with a divine purpose.
But if we are honest, at times educators can feel weighed down emotionally, physically, and mentally by the daily challenges we face in our profession. Jesus knows when we feel drained and weary, we can struggle with making an impact, finding ourselves merely trying to get through the day.
So, He gives us the Truth. In John 17:17, Jesus asks His Father to help us fulfill our callings when He prays, '“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth”' (NIV). God’s Truth sanctifies us, allowing our lives to testify of His grace, mercy, and love. Jesus knows we need the Word, the Truth, to effectively minister to those in our schools. We simply cannot do it on our own.
When we embrace the Truth, we are empowered to fulfill our divine purposes. We may feel tempted to give in to discouragement when facing challenges in our schools, but we can turn to the Truth to strengthen us.
If you are looking for encouragement, please reach out to us. CEAI is here to further support you as you effectively answer His divine calling in your schools.
