We have (t)his Ministry

We will have the first ever Centennial Christian Movement Fellowship on Tuesday, August 23. I am excited to see how God will work in this new dorm fellowship, though I am also a bit nervous because of the uncertainties ahead.

I encouraged JD, Kazel and Jim to go slow and start their invitations with friends and roommates. Prayerfully and with God's guidance, we will be able to establish a vibrant fellowship in the Centennial Dormitory.

2 Corinthians 4 is a great encouragement for me, especially its opening verse that says, "Therefore, since through God's mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart." It reminded me that the CCM ministry is not our own. Even the desires that we have to start it came not from us but from God. As such, we must draw strength from Him who enabled the ministry to bud.

I will be speaking in the first ever fellowship and I will begin with the very passage that inspired me. I'm still trying to figure out which of the many wonderful points to include and emphasize, but it suffices to say that the message will be about the CCM ministry and God's direction for the fellowship.

I know that all of God's ministries that touched people's lives started out small. We are still small and I'm unsure how long before we can establish the fellowship. But though we are a minority, I remember Pastor Bel who always emphasized, "We can be the overwhelming minority!"

These things will come to pass only with God's help. And when they do, I also pray that God will keep us humble and will remind us that we have no right to boast except in the Cross of Jesus Christ.

May God strengthen us and keep us on our knees as we begin His ministry in the centennial dormitory. :)
