One of the things I dislike the most about winter is having to walk through icky brown slush. If snow could stay white and compact, it wouldn’t bother me as much because it is beautiful in its original form. Do you agree? As I walk around UB’s snowy campus, I have been reminded of the Bible verse Isaiah 1:18,
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow…”
If I dislike the icky brown slush so much because it’s messy and not in its ‘original form,’ how much more does God despise sin? Students in Campus Ambassadors are grasping this concept. As we dig into scripture and talk about our daily life struggles, we are all noticing that we can not change the icky slush in our own lives to pure white snow on our own. Thank you God for your Grace: God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense. Overall, we all need Jesus.
Campus Ambassadors has been engaging students at the University At Buffalo through a number of different events. It is exciting to see how God uses these events to help students ask questions about Christianity, engage Christians in conversations, and gives them the opportunity to learn more about who Jesus Christ.
Spring Semester is flying by and God is not wasting any time: 1 student baptized. 1 student accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. Praise God!
What’s going on at UB?
Campus Ambassadors joined with several other campus ministries in hosting The Veritas Forum. Dr. Michael Licona, New Testament Historian, discussed the historicity and the reliability of the resurrection. There were about 100 students in attendance. Please pray for the students who attended. Pray for their hearts to be open to the truth.
UB Campus Ambassadors just came back from a refreshing weekend away at Pioneer Camp and Retreat Center with Monroe Community College and SUNY Brockport’s Campus Ambassadors. Throughout the weekend, students were challenged to dig deep in the Bible and reflect on their own spiritual walk with the Lord. On the retreat, we went through Francis Chan’s Basic Series which covered the following topics.
At the end of the retreat students were given the opportunity to share what God has taught them throughout the weekend. Many students shared different ways that God has restored their faith, opened their eyes to areas in their life that they need to work on, and how God gave them a deeper understanding of who He is. I am so thankful to witness Jesus transforming the lives of college students before my eyes.
I am humbled that God has chosen me to be His hands and feet on the college campus. Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
