Bible Distribution Day

2021-12-08 -Giving-Away-Free-Bibles01

We were back at the Petersen Heritage Center giving away the best gift ever – The Word of God.

  • We setup the table on Wednesday December 8, 4:30-6:30 PM.
  • Students were invited to simply take one of these New Testament study Bibles.
  • There were no strings attached, we didn’t require people to pay, to give us there name, or any such thing. 
  • We gave out the Recovery Version. It has footnotes that open up the spiritual meaning of the word. You can still get one free from Bibles for America.

2021-12-08 -Giving-Away-Free-Bibles02While we sat there, we shared portions of the word with one another. When one student came by and was interested in knowing what made this Bible different, we were able to show them a verse we were enjoying. We opened up to Matthew 13:8, where the Lord Jesus tells a parable about a sower who went out to sow. The seeds he sowed fell in different places. The verse says:

But others fell on the good earth and yielded fruit, one a hundredfold, and one sixtyfold, and one thirtyfold.

The other verses in chapter 13 as well as the footnotes in the Recovery Version helped us to understand what the good earth really is. Here’s one of the footnotes for verse 8.

The good earth signifies the good heart that is not hardened by worldly traffic, that is without hidden sins, and that is without the anxiety of the age and the deceitfulness of riches. Such a heart gives every inch of its ground to receive the word that the word may grow, bear fruit, and produce even a hundredfold (v. 23). – New Testament Recovery Version

The student smiled and thanked us for giving her the word of God. Just that alone was such a sweet encouragement to us. Thank the Lord for these sweet opportunities.

2019 Arches Spring Break Trip

Christians on Campus took this two-night trip to explore beautiful southern Utah! We explored the town of Moab, Arches National Park, and Canyonlands national park! The natural creation of God allows us to perceive His invisible characteristics– His power, His beauty! God becomes so real to us when we are out exploring nature!

Christians on Campus at the University of Utah – 2018 Spring Break Trip

This much anticipated Spring Break trip took us through the following cities:
Colorado: Denver, Boulder, Estes Park
Wyoming: Lyman

When we were in Denver on Thursday and Friday morning of the trip we gathered together before going sight-seeing. Those morning times were full of fellowship and worship. We released our spirits in praise to the Lord like never before, especially as we sang Psalm 30:11-12 “Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing for me…!”

Here are the lyrics of this song:

Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing for me;
Thou hast put off my sackcloth;
Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing for me,
And girded me with gladness;
To the end my glory may sing praise unto Thee,
And not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto Thee forever.

Listen to the tune here: https://www.hymnal.net/en/hymn/h/1334

In Denver we also visited the Red Rock Amphitheater where we sang some songs from the stage!

Boulder is such a colorful town! We hiked and went tea tasting, of course!

During the Christians on Campus Mountain States College Cconference at Estes Park, every student from every campus prepared a one minute point of truth. One person shared on 2 Corinthians 4:7 “We have this treasure in earthen vessels…”. According to the verses surrounding this verse, the light of God is what brings the treasure into us, the vessels. This Treasure is Jesus Christ! What is needed, is for us to open our minds to God. This is like a camera opening the shutter to let the light in and then the light burns the image onto the film! Lord Jesus, We’d like to turn to you again and again, and gain You more and more!

 

An Exceedingly Good Land – Its Unsearchable Riches – Minerals 2

Minerals2We had seen that minerals are for building. This time we saw that minerals are also for protection. That is, for the spiritual warfare.

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armor of God that you
may be able to stand against the stratagems of
the devil

Join us for the Christians on Campus Bible Studies. We not only study, we also get to know each other, we eat dinner, we sing, and we pray!

An Exceedingly Good Land – Its Unsearchable Riches – Minerals

Even as we gather and enjoy delicious food with the Christians on Campus club, and even as we prepare for our big Spring Break Trip with the club, our focus is still Christ. This week we saw what our relationship is with the minerals found in the Good Land. Furthermore, we found that our need is transformation!

Coming to Him, a living stone, rejected by men
but with God chosen and precious, You
yourselves also, as living stones, are being built
up as a spiritual house into a holy priesthood to
offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God
through Jesus Christ. (1 Pet 2:4-5)

An Exceedingly Good Land – Its Unsearchable Riches – Food

Wednesday, February 21, 2018, 6pm.

Food

As we continued to look at the Good Land, which represents Christ, we saw it’s goodness represented by fig trees, pomegranates, the olive tree, and milk and honey.  We found…

  • sweetness
  • satisfaction
  • beauty
  • and the abundance of life

Ultimately again, to experience Christ in such a rich way and to flow His life out to others, we must be those who get filled with the Spirit, as revealed in the following verse…

And I answered a second time and said to him, What are the two olive branches that are by the side of the two golden spouts, which empty the gold from themselves? And he spoke to me, saying, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, sir. And he said, These are the two sons of oil, who stand by the Lord of the whole earth. (Zech. 4:12-14)
