On Wednesday, May 22, we had our last chapel of this school year, and for those of us that are seniors, it was our last chapel ever as a student at Blackhawk. At the beginning of the year, the chapel class showed a video of a builder working tirelessly on a house. Wednesday, the end of that video was shown and the meaning became clear that the builder, God, is still working on his house, His Kingdom, and will never stop until all His children have come home. Larissa Clark and Hannah Hartley read Ephesians 6:23-24, Paul’s last words in his letter to the church in Ephesus, and after a few worship songs led by Christian Crampton, Mr. Kowatch came up to speak on Ephesians 6:10-24.
Mr. Kowatch encouraged us with Paul’s closing remarks to the church. Paul tells the church in Ephesus, “finally,” to stand strong. Mr. Kowatch pointed out that those in Christ will be able to stand strong, but those not in the Lord will be tossed back and forth by the false teachings of this world. We were reminded that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against Satan, evil, and death. We are able to stand strong against this enemy through the armor of God. Satan cannot win against any piece of our armor. When we are fully clothed in God’s armor, we can then defeat our enemy. Thanks, Mr. Kowatch, for the powerful send off, as we head into our summer break.
