God Gives the Growth

The Bible says one plants and another waters, but God gives the growth (1 Cor. 3:6). One of our new upper-class members this year became convinced of Christianity last summer while he was home for the break. He shared about his first time going to church back at home and hearing the pastor:

"I didn’t understand what he meant at the time and I thought it was all a bit weird, but the message made me want to learn more. [...] I learned that Jesus died so that our hearts and our minds may be free from the shackles of sin. I realized his death on the cross was the ultimate act of love at its core, and with this—along with my entire experience with my church—I wanted to fully accept Christ into my life, and I was baptized in July 2015."

Upon his return to campus last Fall, he was worried whether he would find a Christian community. But he found RUF and has carried on in trusting Jesus. We had lots going on this past Spring semester, but it was something else to hear about God's work in this student's life. Praise God who is great shepherd of his sheep!
