See You at the Pole — September 26th

See You at the Pole is a prayer meeting at the flag pole on a public school campus.  This annual event is held on the 4th Wednesday of September before or after school.

If you are considering participating in this event, I pray you remember that you are a witness of our Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ.   By showing yourself as a Christian you are giving the impression that your behavior is what all Christians are like.  I pray that you will participate in this event ONLY IF YOU ARE HONESTLY TRYING TO LOVE people the way Jesus loves people.

I became Christian at age 40.    I wish I had become a Christian sooner.  I would have considered being a Christian decades sooner if I had known that self-righteous, condescending Christians are NOT encouraged nor considered acceptable to God.

I am begging you my Christian sisters and brothers to please shout up and tell no one that you are Christian if you are NOT WILLING  TO OBEY Jesus Christ.    Jesus hates sin, AND LOVES PEOPLE.   You DO NOT HAVE God’s blessing when you are mistreating another person.   If YOU, by your behavior, are the only Bible someone reads, please make sure they read what Jesus actually said.

We have enough bullies in the world.   Please use your understanding of the Christian faith to encourage your fellow Christians, NOT belittle other faiths or push our faith on others.   You are commanded to know God and let him be known.  Read your Bible and understand the LOVE GOD has for His creation before you open your mouth in public.

The following is from http://www.syatp.org:

See You at the Pole™, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. More than two decades later, millions around the world pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.

SYATP is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. SYATP is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event.

One of the amazing aspects of See You at the Pole™ is the spiritual harvest that continues on. After students rally together at their flagpole in September, Bible clubs, prayer groups, and evangelism takes place all year long. Many churches work together to sponsor before and after the Pole rallies for students.

Whether a single student standing alone, two or three huddled together in unity, or hundreds gathered in front of the school, See You at the Pole™ is about students praying for awakening on campuses all over the world.

The 2012 See You at the Pole™ theme is Awaken and the Scripture is Ephesians 3:14–21—“For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father… I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being so that Christ may dwell in your hearts…And I pray that you… grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and…that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine…’”
