STAYING CLOSER TO GOD
2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Timothy 3:13
But continue in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you have learned them;
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
That you may love the LORD thy God, and that you may obey his voice, and that you may cleave unto him: for he is your life, and the length of thy days:
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
DEALING WITH THE SECULAR WORLD & TEMPTATION
1 John 2:15-17
15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
13Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
I Thessalonians 5:22-23
22Abstain from all appearance of evil.
23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
STRESS OF COLLEGE LIFE
In the day of my trouble I will call upon you. For you will answer me.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
II Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind
28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
A CHRISTIAN WITNESS
Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
I Timothy 4:12
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
THE FUTURE PLANS
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD.
A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.
11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
12Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
13And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
