It’s that time of year again. The time where students from all over the world begin to make the journey to Purdue University. For some the passage is simple: a quick drive from Lafayette into West Lafayette. Others have a more difficult trek: cramped car rides, delayed airlines, a journey halfway around the world away from family and friends. Most of these students have been here before, but for many it with be the beginning of a new chapter in life.
Whether near or far, old or new, all of those students have one thing in common: the need to be reconciled with God by the redemption through Jesus Christ. Salt and Light Christian Fellowship, the college-aged ministry at Kossuth, exists for that reason: to Glorify God by Gathering together, Growing as disciples of Christ, that we may Go and boldly proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. Church, as partners with us and as members of one body I ask that you please pray for the upcoming year.
- Pray for Abraham and Stephen. That they would be wise and discerning, being faithful to God and His Word, as they lead and disciple students to Christ.
- Pray for the Student Leaders: Cameron, BJ, Emma, Rebecca, Jessica, and Lydia
- Pray for the Students.
- Pray for the advancement of the Gospel.
- Pray for growth.
1 Corinthians 3:7 says “So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.” Please pray that the Lord would produce fruit in the lives of the students this year. Pray as Paul did, “that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.” (Colossians 1:9-12)
My life is a testimony to the work that God is doing at KSBC through Salt and Light Christian Fellowship. It is only by the goodness and grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ and the work of His Spirit that I am where I’m at today. Church, I exhort you to be steadfast in prayer. As you faithfully do so, remember those students at Purdue and Kossuth who are in the body of Christ, praise God for His faithfulness to His people, and pray earnestly for those who are still perishing under the wrath of God.
“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ…” (Colossians 4:2-3)
