In chapel today, we looked at Ephesians 2:1-10, one of the greatest passages in all of the Bible. As we studied together, we felt the weight of the first half of the passage – we were once dead in our trespasses and sins – and the joy of the second half – as followers of Jesus Christ, we have been made alive in Him.
Apart from Christ we were doomed, rebels against the Creator of the universe, but God in His mercy has made us alive, raised us up, and seated us with Him in Jesus Christ so that we may walk in the good works that He has already prepared for us. The spiritually dead are made alive in Christ to do good work for His glory!
Join us as we look at this amazing passage to discover the hope we have in Christ.
It is tradition at Cedarville that the president give a State of the University address each year during homecoming chapel. It was my honor to do so this past Friday, and to share that the state of the university is strong, “Stinger” strong, in fact.
The Lord has been so kind and has blessed us in ways we could not have imagined. I encourage you to watch the State of the University address as we recall what God has done and is doing at Cedarville in our enrollment, our finances, academic programs, and the spiritual heartbeat of our students. We also look forward with faithful expectation to what He will continue to do as we seek to honor Him with all that He has entrusted to us.
The Lord has indeed been kind to us, and we are so grateful, and we will continue to stand strong for the Word of God and the Testimony of Jesus Christ.
