On October 3, children all across the United States are invited to bring their Bibles to school with them for the sixth annual “Bring Your Bible to School Day.”
According to the event’s sponsor, Focus on the Family, the event is designed to be a yearlong movement that encourages students to not only bring their Bibles to school but to share their Bibles and live their lives according to the word.
To help students get involved in the movement, Focus on the Family offers monthly challenges that give kids “specific, tangible actions they can take to live out their faith at school and in the community throughout the year.”
The motto for this year’s event is: “Bring It. Share It. Live It.” And according to CBN News, this is the first time Focus on the Family has introduced the “Live Your Faith” initiative.
This year, too, the ministry is offering one student and their family a chance to win a trip to the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. if they sign-up to participate in BYBTSD.
BYBTSD made national headlines in September after Focus on the Family revealed that NFL superstar Drew Brees would be partnering with the organization on the event.
Known for its pro-family beliefs, Focus on the Family was pegged as homophobic and anti-LGBTQ, sparking many to call Brees’ partnership with the Christian organization into question.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
