Reflect and Respect the Diversity within our Community
Written by: Randy Green, Nazareth Baptist School, Bible and English Teacher
We endeavor to reflect and respect the diversity within our community
Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Ever since Adam and Eve chose to listen to Satan instead of God, the world has known disunity and a lack of peace. Throughout the whole of Scripture we see God working and guiding to restore a people to Himself from every tribe, tongue and nation. His plan climaxed with the incarnation, crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. In the further unfolding of His plan, the Spirit came in power at Pentecost and He continues to work in all believers bringing unity and peace.
NBS is a unique place with Arab Christian and Muslim students from throughout the Galilee, living as minorities in a Jewish land. On top of that, it sits in the center of the Middle East - a place not particularly known for peace. We know that true unity and peace only comes through salvation in Jesus alone and is a work of the Spirit. As believers at the school we strive to display and share what Christ has done in us. We work so that by God's grace, they will know our peace and unity in Jesus. Pray for the Spirit to come in power and unify a generation of young people under the Cross of Christ.
Please pray that there would be a church next to the (relocated) school so that students and parents could come together and worship.
