Last Sunday we honored our high school and college graduates in our morning service. Eighteen young men and women will be entering college or pursuing a career now that they have graduated from high school, and they need our prayers.
I expressed my concern for them as I challenged them from God's Word to trust in Christ as the anchor for their future. We live in such a confusing and chaotic world, and our young people who are stepping on college campuses for the first time are very vulnerable to the cultural climate they are about to enter. The anti-Christian bias and liberal mindset of many college professors will challenge our young people to reject the core beliefs and foundations of their faith.
Jesus spoke to His disciples in John 14 and told them not to be troubled about their circumstances or environment but trust in Him. He is the way, the truth and the life. Trust in Christ and faith in His Word will navigate these young people through the perilous landscape of a worldly culture. Pray that our young college and career students will stand firm in their faith in Christ and be the overcomers that Christ will reward one day.
