Honor Academy’s Treatise of the Graduate Internship

My second year at the HA we had to memorize this. It’s really a great Biblical standard to live by. I’ve been meaning to post it for a while, but kept forgetting. Good times. Enjoy.

Treatise of the Graduate Internship (with verse references)

As Graduate Interns we have responded to the call to aggressively and passionately pursue our own self-development (Philippians 2:13) and that of each individual within our sphere of influence.

It is our responsibility to clearly mark the path enabling others to follow as we follow the example of Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:1) We are perfectly united in mind and thought (2 Corinthians 13:11, Philippians 2:2, and 2 Chronicles 30:12), standing in one spirit, contending as one man, proclaiming Christ as one voice to this generation. (Philippians 1:27, and Romans 15: 5-6) Our leadership is based on a selfless sense of duty (1 Kings 12:7, and Philippians 2:4) that demands that we surpass what is expected of ourselves and of those with whom we serve (Matthew 25:19-21). We were designed (Psalms 139:13-16) for accomplishment (Romans 8:28-32), intended for success (Proverbs 16:3, and Psalms 20:4) and endowed with seeds of greatness (1 Peter 1:23). We are not limited by the place of our birth, color of skin (Galatians 3:28) but the size of our hope (1 Timothy 4:9-10, and 1 Timothy 6:17) and faith (Matthew 17:20-21, Matthew 21:21-22, and Hebrews 11) in our God. We now live by his presence (Hosea 6:2, and Psalms 89:15-17), we lean on his faith (Romans 12:3) and, we love by patience (1 Corinthians 13:4), and we lift by prayer (Philippians 4:6, and 1 Thessalonians 5:16) and labor by power (2 Peter 1:3, and Acts 1:8).

Challenges ahead will frequently bring pain (1 Peter 4:12) but pain is temporary while growth is permanent. We believe that those challenges will form the strongest moral foundation that will produce the leaders who best reflect the legacy of the Honor Academy (James 1:2-4). This is our conviction and true commitment to ourselves and to God from which we will NOT BACK DOWN!
…and without Scripture references…
