See You At The Pole

- Advertisement -spot_img

In early 1990 a small group of 10 students from Burlington Texas decided to meet at their school flag pole to pray for their school, friends, families, and community. Little did they know then the impact they would have as they put feet to their faith. Later they shared their vision at a Discipleship Now conference in June of 1990 with 20,000 students from across the State of Texas. This resulted in more than 45,000 students meeting at local High School flag poles throughout 4 different States. One year later those numbers rose to over one million across the US. Today, an estimated three million students participate in over 20 different countries.
I am proud of these students who are wiling to put their faith out there for the world to see. We live in a day and age where, in many places Christian Faith is looked down on and even persecuted. But here in Lavaca Arkansas as well as other towns across our State, many of our kids unashamedly wear the faith for all the world to see. We have been blessed to live in a land where we have the freedom to Worship, the freedom to assemble, the freedom to express our belief. However, those freedoms are increasingly under attack. Our kids have so many more temptations than we did. Our society has force fed them Humanism,, Darwinism, and Socialism. Society has taken away discipline, and accountability. We see history being suppressed and rewritten. We see the belittling of the Christian faith. We see hate groups convincing our youth that they are somehow responsible for the color of their skin and the sins of generations past.
Our Country as great as it is is under attack from with in, and the main point of attack is on our youth and their faith. But the See You At The Pole movement brings hope. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says,
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
