I want to Honor the Lord Jesus Christ:
By my ATTITUDE TOWARD MY TEACHERS. “Obey your leaders, and submit to them: for they keep watch over your souls, as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you.” Heb. 13:17
>> Therefore, I will strive to be a positive member of my class. I should not carry on conversations, pass notes, or be disruptive when the teacher is conducting class.
By my ATTITUDE TOWARD MY CLASSMATES. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself. Phil. 2:3
>> Therefore, I will consider each student as a member of our school family and do my best to develop a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood among my fellow students. How good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell together in unity.
By my ATTITUDE TOWARD THE FACILITY. But let all things be done properly and in an orderly manner. For God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. I Cor. 14:40 and 33
>> Therefore, I will not misuse equipment, furnishings or any other part of the facility. This property does not belong to us and we should maintain an excellent testimony with Reston Bible Church.
With my SPEECH Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, that it may give grace to those who hear. Eph. 4:29
>> Therefore, I will seek to encourage my classmates and refrain from trash talk, foul language, sexual speech, gossip, coarse joking or any language that would be offensive to the Lord.
With my DEEDS. Let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds. Heb. 10:24
>> Therefore, I will take responsibility for my actions. I want to hold others accountable for theirs and expect them to hold me accountable for mine knowing that “iron sharpens iron.” I will do unto others, as I would have them do to me. If I offend a classmate or a teacher, I will take the necessary steps to make the situation right again. I will conduct myself honestly and will always try my best knowing that I should do everything as unto the Lord.
With my BODY. Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you were bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. I Cor. 6:19,20
>> Therefore, I will dress in a modest and proper manner when attending classes. Exercising self-control, I will not purposely harm myself or others nor will I abuse my body with alcohol, drugs or tobacco. I will not use the class day as an opportunity to pursue members of the opposite sex.
Let this be our goal! None of us is perfect, but let us be committed to honoring Christ as individuals and as a group. It is our desire to be a good testimony for Christianity and Homeschooling.
