What incredible days of opportunity for the Gospel!

Over the past few weeks, Skype, Zoom, virtual meetings, and Dropbox have quickly surfaced as household terms. Today, we interact with people around the world in ways we never dreamed possible. During this time of social distancing and stay-at-home mandates, people crave community and a sense of belonging more than ever. It’s no accident that our theme this year at our Word of Life Bible Institutes is “Connected.” God designed us for relationship. Our goal is that every staff member and student be connected in relationship. The Gospel of Jesus Christ connects us. This relationship is fleshed out by the daily demonstration of agape love . . . a selfless and unconditional commitment to one another. The famous love chapter, I Corinthians 13, presents a series of action words to help us understand what this kind of love is: patient and kind, does not envy or seek its own, is not provoked, hopes and endures all things. For Christians, this is an incredible time to practice what we preach. Jesus said, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:35) Agape love serves as a badge of identification to our world and a bridge to share the reason for the hope we possess in Jesus Christ. This is also a great time to deepen your relationship with the Lord. Learn the Word classes remain available for individuals or small groups; devotional videos post daily to our Facebook page, and four weeks of the downloadable Quiet Time are available for free. As an alumnus, we always love hearing from you. Just reach out on any of our social media platforms listed below. We look forward to connecting with you, hearing your story, providing resources, and praying with you.
