College is a kingdom of its own. It offers freedom like you’ve never experienced it before. You now live away from family, nobody’s monitoring your moves, you become master of your life. You set up your personal course schedule and determine your academic performance. Campus pressures compared to other areas of life are greater: Drugs, plagiarism, alcohol, exposure to different religions, debt/bankruptcy, burnout, homesickness, fornication, anxiety, etc.
That’s when college really tests your faith by unveiling the true reason why you believe in Jesus. Ask yourself this question: Did I follow Christ back home because I wanted to or because I was told to?
If you followed Christ out of your own will, your college journey will reveal your love, integrity, and perseverance in the Lord. However, if you followed Christ out of requirement, your college journey will reveal the true colors of your heart. Therefore, decide today whom you want to please: Christ or yourself?
