God Uses All Kinds of Chi Alpha Staff

Posted by Bill Walsh in Student
When I finished up my first SICM back in 2002, I knew then and there Chi Alpha was destined to be a part of my life in serving Jesus and mobilizing the Good News.  So many of us Chi Alpha staff can trace our college ministry origins back to such a moment. At one point or another, we saw the white heads of grain amid the university and responded. We saw the huge, flaming mountaintop beacon beckoning us to love…

The Right Motive

Posted by Alex Rodriguez in Student
Preacher Charles Spurgeon has an old sermon anecdote that goes like this:  There was a king who ruled over everything in a land. One day there was a gardener who grew an enormous carrot.  He took it to his king and said, “My lord, this is the greatest carrot I’ve ever grown or ever will grow; therefore, I want to present it to you as a token of my love and respect for you.”  The king was touched and discerned the man’s…

Historic Student Awakenings

Posted by Nathan Cole in Student
Awakening is not a new and novel idea. Throughout history there have been Spirit-led seasons of prodigious kingdom expansion that can only be explained in retrospect by sovereign moves of God. These movements were not orchestrated by feeble attempts of men to stir up religious fervor or grow any single organization; these movements superseded the scope of any one group in influence and expansion to fulfill an urgent need in the heart of God for rapid kingdom growth. From the…

Delivered From Evil

The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble (Prov 16:4). Surely oppression drives the wise into madness, and a bribe corrupts the heart. Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit. Be not quick in your spirit to become angry, for anger lodges in the heart of fools. Say not, “Why were the former days better than these?”…

Can't Hold Back

And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You…

Participate in Society

Her husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land (Prov 31:23). Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy (Prov 31:8-9). So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith (Gal 6:10). Are you voting next week? Not just for…

Listen to Those you Lead

Posted by Jesse Pingenot in Student
And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to…

Theomorphic

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them (Gen 1:26-27). For every kind of beast and…

Face the Monster

Posted by Jesse Pingenot in Student
No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds…

The Right Side of History

Posted by Jesse Pingenot in Student
Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of…
