Nazareth Baptist Scholl is Part of the Community
Written by: Nermine Haj, NBS Board Member, Pharmacist
As a school we are part of the Nazareth Community
With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
To carry out the vision of oneness with the Lord and others, we are to conduct ourselves in humbleness, gentleness, patience and long suffering. We are to act diligently to preserve the unity of the Spirit. When we live out our lives in this manner, with one heart and mind seeking God's will, we'll see God's blessing upon the school.
Through humility, we see the needs of others. Humility brings forth gentleness. The Scripture calls us to demonstrate patience towards people. By showing forbearance to one another in love we are able to exercise forgiveness and tolerance. Humility, patience and forbearance are possible because of the power of His love. These character traits produce peace and love.
NBS is a diverse community. We strive, as God commands in Ephesians 4:2-3, to be an example of God's love, grace and peace to all in our community. God's challenge to His people is to seek His will. By doing so, it will bring about an intensified response from God to fulfill His purpose. This will bring forth an obedient, loving generation that will be wisely guided and humbly led in unity.
May our loving Father guide us daily as we resist strained relationships, misunderstandings, quick judgment and an unforgiving spirit. May we live out this unity in the challenges we face.
We need always to remind ourselves that unity does not initiate love but love initiates the unity.
Pray for a larger impact of NBS on the local churches.
