Today’s post is a thank you letter to all of the students who have come and gone through Word to the World College since I arrived in 1994. Many of you have heard that the college is changing from a two year accredited college to a church based ministry training center and as a result the current administrative and faculty team is moving on to new things in God. July 29th is my last day at WWC.
It has been wonderful to fellowship with the class of 2005, their families and the alumni who returned for the celebrations over the last several days. It was an enjoyable and rewarding time as we remembered days gone by and some of the many experiences we have had together. It has been an honor to be at WWC and have the opportunity to impact your lives for the sake of the Gospel and the work of our heavenly father among so many of the people groups on the earth.
I want to encourage you to apply yourselves to fulfilling your calling and the carrying out His purpose through you.
Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. NKJV Deut 6:5
1. To have the mind of Christ, Philippians 2:5 and a heart after God.
2. That you serve ‘the great, the mighty, and awesome God,’
3. That he has called you to do the work of the ministry, to build up one another and equip His people so that they might come into the measure of the stature which belongs to fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:12-13, LK19:10, LK 4:18
4. He has called you to turn the world upside down.
Remember also, to be faithful servants and good stewards of what He puts in your hand so that you will one day hear Him say, “...well done thou good and faithful servant.” Matt 25:21.
I look forward to hearing from you in the days ahead the good things God is doing in and through you!
The time has come; there are lives to change and cities to transform.
"RISE UP LET US GO FROM HERE." JOHN 14:31
13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints — 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,
By His Grace and in His Power
