Yearly Theme Verse
Each school year the staff of Master's Baptist College pick a theme verse for students to reflect on and staff to encourage students to strive towards. The theme verse for the 2021-22 school year is Galatians 2:20 with the key phrase being "Yet not I."
We live in an age where even God’s people tend to see everything through the lens of self. We intuitively ask ourselves, sometimes consciously, How does this affect me? What’s in it for me? or we declare, I have my rights! and so on. The child of God needs to remember or understand that we been “bought with a price” and we are “not our own” (I Cor 6:20). Christians today have missed the truths of God’s Word wherein we find that we are “hid with Christ” (Col 3:3), that we are – have been – “crucified with Christ” and that by design, at salvation God intends for Christ to be seen in us.
In what we hope is a post-COVID academic school year, students at Master’s will be challenged with the truth that regardless of our circumstances, God is in control and has a purpose for each of us – He desires for us to decrease that He might increase in our lives. The world needs to see Jesus! If they don’t see Him in us, where will they see Him?
Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
