Our days are governed by a desire to honor the Lord in our actions, affections, and behavior by focusing on the Word of God. We fill our days with Scripture so that we can hide it in our heart. Most of this is through songs. Several of these verses are a part of our daily questions and answers.
Each day, a teacher asks prescribed questions. The students answer with given Scripture. This provides a sweet and serious moment in the morning, setting forth the day in dedication and purpose.
What is the most important thing we will do today?
We will love the Lord our God with all our hearts and with all our souls and with all our minds. (Matthew 22:37)
Who are we?
We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own special people, that we may proclaim the praises of him who called us out of darkness into his marvelous light. (1 Peter 2:9)
How will we treat people today?
Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. (Romans 12:9-10)
How will we act today?
As God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, we will clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. We will bear with each other and forgive one another if any of us has a grievance against someone, forgiving as the Lord forgave us. (Colossians 3:12-15)
How will we work today?
Whatever we do, whether in word or deed, we will do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17)
What attitude will we have?
We will do everything without complaining or arguing, so that we may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Then we will shine among them like stars in the sky as we hold firmly to the word of life. (Philippians 2:13-16)
Does being a good student (or a good person) get me into heaven?
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:8-10)
What will we learn today?
We have not ceased to pray, asking that we may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of this beloved Son, him whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1:9-14)
What do our school colors mean?
Burgundy reminds us of the Blood of Christ:
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, to cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? (Hebrews 9:14)
Silver reminds us that God is making us beautiful.
For You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us as silver is refined. (Psalm 66:10)
What is our school motto and what does it mean?
Lux Luceat Lux Vestra is Latin for “Let your light shine.”
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)
