We had an amazing campus retreat this past weekend, entitled “Bold,” and we want to see our faith, inspiration, and boldness continue growing through the end of school and into the summer. For the next 7 days, we will be releasing daily quiet time starters “Living Boldly” to kick start our day and inspire us to take action. Our theme Scripture inspires us how we can impact those around us.
1 Thessalonians 1:4-5 NIV
For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you,  because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake.
This passage breaks down the 7 areas we need to focus on to Live Boldly. We will be focusing on each of these topics and the book of Acts to teach and inspire one another to Live Boldly! Join us on a journey to become bold.

Jeremiah 1:5 Voice Eternal One: Before I even formed you in your mother’s womb, I knew all about you. Before you drew your first breath, I had already chosen you to be My prophet to speak My word to the nations.
God has an incredible vision and destiny for our lives. When we answer God’s calling, He’s able to use us to have an impact on those around us.
Ephesians 1:4-5 NLT
 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.  God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
God doesn’t see us the way we see ourselves. He chose us and set us apart.
John 15:16 NLT You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.
Only when we believe we’re chosen by Him can we inspire others to chose God.
