Clarity in Chaos
Entropy—a scientific term referring to the tendency of an ordered system to move toward disorder. But you don’t have to be a scientist to see entropy in action. Entropy explains why the room you just picked up is a mess again and why the vehicle you just cleaned is dirty again. It explains why your child can bounce back from taking a tumble, but you take a week to recover! It also explains why the world around us seems to be getting worse: it is. The Bible confirms that it is so because of sin (Rom. 6:23; 8:21).
But this message isn’t all doom and gloom, there is hope in the midst of the chaos! Despite the natural world and humanity heading toward disorder, God has given a clear and simple path. He doesn’t hide it. He offers it freely to everyone (Jn. 3:16, II Cor. 5:17).
Today in our Easter chapel, your children, from Pre-K all the way to the seniors, shared the truth so clearly. They told me about our need for a savior because of our sin. They explained how the Old Testament pointed to a Messiah. Even the younger children understood why Jesus came—to serve, to die, and come alive again to save us from our sins!
I challenged our students to share what they know about Jesus with the people around them, the world. And I challenge you to do the same, to share the good news of Jesus with the world around you that is living in darkness. “Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’” (Jn. 8:12)
Have a Happy Easter celebrating our risen Savior! Mr. Krick, Principal
