What Would Happen If . . . You Brought Your Bible to School?

All of us at some time have felt the hesitation of sharing our faith. Missed opportunities, thoughtlessness, or even the fear of being made fun of or loosing friends might cause us to not share the most important thing in our lives.

This Thursday, you have the opportunity to join tens of thousands of other kids, who love Jesus and have a passion for His Word, by bringing your Bible to school.

Focus on the Family’s “Bring Your Bible to School Day” is Thursday, October 6. Here are just a few ways bringing your Bible to school could have an impact in your own life . . . as well as the ones around you!

Bringing your Bible to school is a simple way to show that you’re not ashamed of God and His Word. Jesus promised, “Whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 10:32). Isn’t it amazing that the Creator of the universe cares for us like that?! When you take a stand for Jesus, He will show Himself faithful–every time!

Bringing your Bible to school is one of your rights as an American. We have the amazing privilege to live in a nation where we are able to share our faith publicly. The First Amendment grants each of us to engage in voluntary, free speech conversations as long as it does not interfere with or substantially disrupt classroom time and academic instruction.

Brining your Bible to school may open the door for you to talk about your faith, or even form a new friendship. In the first chapter of Romans, Paul states that everyone has an inborn knowledge of God. All of us (at some time or another) have had questions about God. Don’t be scared about not having all the answers. When you respond in love, like you really care, the Holy Spirit will lead you.

Perhaps you already carry God’s Word with you to school or work, maybe you can use Bring Your Bible to School Day to take your faith a step further by sharing the gospel with a friend. No matter what, remember, God’s Word tells us that He has not given us the “spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 2:7). Plus, thousands of other believers will be praying for you as you take a bold stand for Him.

Remember, it’s not only the world’s best selling book, it’s powerful enough to change lives for eternity!
