a word from The Sponsor ~ October 31

After assessing the latest crop of graduate student work, this verse, Colossians 3:23 continues to echo in my mind, and will perhaps offer advice to all:

 

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people. ~Colossians 3:23

a word from The Sponsor ~ October 17

This is the last Sunday in two of the graduate courses. This weekend will show that prayer in schools is alive and well (!)
(just a little Sunday humor)

 

Romans 15:6-7 is a wonderful verse for rushed, anxious moments, that are mixed with rushed preparation and slight regret over previous time management choices. This is especially true when those moments are compressed together!

Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.”
~Romans 15:6-7 (nlt)

“So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.” ~Romans 15:6-7 (niv)

a word from The Sponsor ~ October 10

Please read the version of Ephesians 6:10-18 that speaks to you. Also, consider substituting your name for the pronouns “you” and “our.”

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full [protection] of God, so that you can [stand up to everything that is thrown your way].  12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against [everything that is thrown our way]. 13 Therefore put on the full [protection] of God, so that when the day of [darkness] comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of Peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the [enemy]. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” ~Ephesians 6:10-18 (adapted from niv, good news, nlt, message)

a word from The Sponsor ~ October 3

“Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” ~Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)

“Finally, brothers and sisters, fill your minds with beauty and truth. Meditate on whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is good, whatever is virtuous and praiseworthy.” ~Philippians 4:8 (the voice)
