Confidence and Humility
This week’s Upper School chapel began with worship led by our student praise band. The students were ready to give Jesus praise for what He has done among them this week.
After worship, several students read from the Bible different passages relating to humility and finding our confidence in Christ. Pastor Mann invited Tanner H to speak on how God has moved through His life this week in the wake of Bailey’s accident.
After Tanner, Pastor Mann spoke on how through this tragic event involving Bailey, the students have embodied true community and unity among one another. Humility and Confidence have been displayed among the students this week, and he encouraged them to continue in that.
Pastor Mann’s focus for Humility was Philippians 2:3, and mentioned the quote from C.S. Lewis, “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.” For Confidence, Pastor Mann focused on Philippians 1:6. He described to the students that confidence is quiet, yet insecurities are loud.
As he closed, Pastor Mann reminded students that while we live in a fallen kingdom, we serve a risen king. When Jesus performed a miracle, it was to show the people of where we are heading – Heaven. His goal wasn’t to bring perfection to earth, but to give a glimpse of where we as believers are going.
