Christopher Columbus Chapter 2 Study Guide

Amazing Essays
What does it mean to live as a Christian? What difference can I make as a teacher? These questions stuck in my mind for a few weeks. Children have a pure heart and they believe in God without doubt. As they are growing up in a Christian environment, they can protect themselves from falling into sin. 2 Timothy 3:14-17 said that “how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” God wants to use all of us and He has a purpose for each of us however, without living a godly life, it …show more content…

If I am not in a good relationship with God, it is impossible to lead the students to God. “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another, if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Colossians 3:12-14 As true Christians who follow Christ, I want their life to be different from non-Christians. I want them to grow physically, socially, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I hope that students can make connections and know the importance of learning all aspects of the subjects. I want them to be successful as God’s people in this world in all areas. I want my students to think about what they have learned as they are living their life in the

They are going through situations that make little to no sense and they need the Lord. As a Christian Educator I must value each student as a God’s creation and that God has put me in a role to help mold, shape and transform these students for His…
