Emptied and Filled

Even this early in the year, we are seeing in our students a real love and desire for the Lord. This first week or so as we are getting the students oriented to Bethany, the Lord has already begun to call them to empty themselves of “those things that so easily beset us” and to fill their lives with more of Him.

On August 30, we spoke to the student body in chapel about purity, and it was 2:00 in the afternoon before some of them had finished doing business with God, getting cleansed, forgiven and recommitting themselves to pursuing a holy, upright life before Him. It was wonderful to see their response to Him, and we believe this is only the beginning of what God intends to do in their lives.

  1. Neat - the Lord has had me on a theme of purity lately as well - both in private study and even the messages at church.
