Staying Spiritual as a Student at a Secular School
With school starting soon, it seems appropriate to give some thought to your game plan for surviving this semester. The most significant factor in determining your success as a student will be the state of your spiritual life. So here is a quick three-point strategy for how you can plan to succeed:
- Devotions: Just as Daniel purposed in his heart in Daniel 1:8, you must purpose in your heart not to miss a single morning’s devotional exercise. Devote to God those hours most favorable to study because you cannot afford not to. Ellen White’s counsel bears repeating here:
“It would be perfectly safe for our youth to enter the colleges of our land if they were converted every day; but if they feel at liberty to be off guard one day, that very day Satan is ready with his snares, and they are overcome and led to walk in false paths—forbidden paths, paths that the Lord has not cast up.” 3SM p231
- Fellowship: From weekly church attendance and potluck, to periodic CAMPUS Retreats and GYC, plan to spend time with like-minded believers. It’s easier for an ember to retain its heat in the midst of other burning embers: Do not try to go it alone. The spiritual fellowship will revitalize you and encourage you in your Christian experience.
- Exercise: The clarity of mind and firmness of purpose achieved by a consistent exercise routine has untold benefits for your spiritual acumen. Time spent exercising is an investment, not a liability.Prayerfully consider how you may implement these three areas into your academic life this semester and watch God bless your efforts.
