“If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
2 Corinthians 5:17
Our Savior has wonderfully remade each one who calls on His name for salvation!
Jesus Christ remakes us to live in righteousness. Ephesians 4:24 teaches us that our new man is no longer bound to live the same way as those who do not know our Savior. We may look at others in dismay when we see their evil habits, but we can truly rejoice that Jesus can free us from those powerful temptations.
As we work with students at LCA, we recognize their sinful natures in need of Jesus Christ’s salvation. Until they make the decision to accept Christ for themselves, they are bound to those habits and proclivities than can destroy them.
However, once they accept the free gift of salvation by believing in Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection, we are equally confident in their ability to defeat temptation through the power of the Holy Spirit. No student is guaranteed to fail!
We have victory and can share that victory with our children. One of the great blessings of a Christian school lies in our freedom to teach children that they truly can be a new creature, free from the bondage of sin and evil.
