A New Semester ...

The fall 2013 school year has gotten off to a positive start as students, new and

returnees alike, have testified of God’s recent work in their lives and have been challenged and encouraged in meetings and chapel services. Testimonies of what God has done in the hearts and lives of students recently were heard during prayer and praise chapel on Wednesday. Topics ranged from God’s hand in summer plans to deliverance from sin. One freshman shared about how God had led her to KMBC from a secular college which carried the promise of “no rules.” She related how much freedom she has now that she is following God instead of just doing whatever she desired.

 

On Friday, August 23, the first chapel service of the semester, Dr. Philip Speas presented a message entitled “Great for God,” in which he shared about the life of about the life of the Apostle Paul and his attitude toward greatness. He explained that in order to be great, you have to be small. The challenges continued the following Tuesday when Dr. Speas began his sermon by pulling McDonalds breakfast food out of a paper bag and asking, “How Hungry are You?” He followed with a message on King David, a man who had a deep hunger for God. These are just a few examples of the challenges and evidence of God’s work that are currently being experienced here at KMBC …  and the semester has only just begun!

 

"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 3:13-14
