(This message was shared by Joseph Bonifacio at the Every Nation World Conference 2016 Day 3)
Why do we do campus ministry?
We do it because we are crazy enough to believe that if we can change the campus, then we can change the world.
This is not just a slogan. It’s our objective.
This is not just a dream we have for ourselves.
This is Jesus’ dream for every son and daughter of God.
How then does this translate?
1. CONNECT WITHOUT COMPROMISING.
Matthew 5:13. You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
Everyone is called to do this.
Let’s teach the next generation to connect with their generation without compromising their faith and values.
2. EXCEL FOR GOD’S GLORY.
Matthew 5:14. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
Excellence cannot be hidden and neither can lack of excellence.
Excel for Christ so that the world will ask why and would want you to be in their team.
3. REDEEM ALL OF SOCIETY.
Matthew 5:16. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Salt that remains in the salt shaker is useless.
The answer to the complication of wickedness is a complication of righteousness. The problem of society is found in the root of sin. And that answer to that is Jesus.
Don’t blame the rottenness of the world. You are called salt and light mainly for that reason – so that you can bring the needed change.
