Reach the Campus, Reach the Nation

In the first ever Koinonia Night (K-Night) for the academic year 2012-2013, the UP Christian Community tackled one of the core pillars of the ministry-- the campus mission field.

Kuya Caloy challenged all of us to continue reaching not only the University of the Philippines but our neighboring campuses as well. He also emphasized the Biblical basis of our ministry which can be traced back to the very beginning of time.

It's amazing to learn that God is the Grand Weaver behind the spread of His wonderful Good News. Despite humanity's disobedience, God's divine plan came to pass for His glory. He used both blessings and persecutions to move His people so that His Gospel may be proclaimed to the ends of the earth.

Finally, as Kuya Caloy traced the history of the missions movement around the globe, I can't help but remember a very moving song by Steve Green, "Find Us Faithful." Part of it goes this way:

Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses
Let us run the race not only for the prize
But as those who've gone before us
Let us leave to those behind us
The heritage of faithfulness passed on through godly lives

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave
Lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful

May the Lord continue to teach us dependence as we serve Him in the mission field that is our campus.

I'm adding an audio recording of the preaching here. May you be blessed!
