As a Christian living in this current age, sometimes we might experience a failure of our spiritual life. Sometimes we might trip and fall a bit. Just remember the power of the blood of Jesus Christ. Just remember that even the apostle Paul said “Not that I have already obtained or am already perfected” and then the next phrase says, “But I pursue.” Yes! We can pursue! We have the right to pursue our precious Lord! Pursue Him with the saints! Let us forget the things behind, stretch forward to the things before, and pursue toward the goal together to the New Jerusalem. [continue reading this article online]
Do I believe in God? Yes, I still do. Do I believe God exists in every discipline or department of the University? No, I still don’t…. The new generation in the university today has a strong distinguishable characteristic of “being grouped together”, and this matter is being strongly practiced and emphasized as years pass by. It’s a good thing – so make sure you are “grouped” with your spiritual friends, call each other to make sure no one is left out!
In our Christian life, it seems like there is always something that demands our attention. In this case, I think a big danger is that if we don’t settle in our being that we MUST love the Lord first, best, and only, and that we MUST be for Christ and the church, then the attitude of being for the Lord when it is convenient may creep in [continue reading]

I cannot just enjoy the Lord because then I fail my exams, and I cannot just study because then I do not enjoy the Lord and I become dry. How do you balance the two?
Being a college student is tiring, stressful, and discouraging at times. On top of that, working and being a student is a challenge at times because I often feel like my time is so limited. Although I feel this way, I always try to be with the saints. Going to the college meetings on Wednesday nights, being in constant fellowship with saints from around the world, going to the home meeting on Friday, and living in the sisters’ house has been such a daily salvation to me
There is a common conflict in college – How much time do I give to the Lord? There is no formula or recipe for this. However, there are some fundamental principles. It is good to go to the Lord first and fellowship with Him. See how much time He wants from you. The Lord will never ask more than you can give. With that being said, you must realize that you are in school to learn and to do the best you possibly can. That must be your main focus.
