To share the gospel. More specifically, utilize our opportunity as a student to make connection with others who have yet to know the gospel, and bring them to Christ. Being an individual who share the same identity under the same environment is an excellent chance to share our belief and our faith to others as a peer. We are to use our lives and our action to be the living testimony of others. This is mine and our ultimate goal to serve as a servant in this fellowship.
“Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”
Jesus urges us to actively preach the good news to others. This is our mission and goal as a servant of God. To share the gospel, there are various practices, activities, and actions that we could carry out to achieve so. The means of method are not limited by how exactly we do so. But we all have to be clear and focus our vision not only on what we do, but on what we are doing for. Despite the different kind of actives and events that we might held, the finial goal is always to bring us closer to Christ. I pray for ourselves that we will not be baffled by our own action, but have a clear mind and fixate ourselves on Christ alone. Focus not on what we do, but on who we are. We do all those to preach the good news to others, so that we all shall be saved by the name of Christ.
The relations and bonding among our brothers and sisters in Christ, is the other thing that I deem essential. We ourselves need to have good fellowship among us before we could preach the gospel.
“We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.”
We need to have a loving fellowship among our brothers and sisters before we can reach out to others. Each one of us have fellowship with our God, and through us, we will bring forward others so that they might also have fellowship with our God. I propose the needs for CCF to be loving and supporting among ourselves, so that everyone who come across our fellowship will experience our love under Christ.
I want to serve God with my brothers and sisters. I am here to return and repay the love, the warmth, and the discipleship that this fellowship had brought to me. I was an observer who rarely participated in any sort of active serving role. This place did not meant much to me when I first came to Usyd, nor did I planned to achieve anything here as well. Grateful to a brother in Christ, I have had the chance to serve God not long after I joined. It was a nightmare. Nightmare in a sense that it gave me a deeper understanding, and realization of what does a servant of God means. It wasn’t exactly easy nor hard, but to serve is to put yourself forward and fully give everything that you have to Christ. I was not ready for it, but no one was born to be ready for serving. The path to Christ is a never ending road. We all are not fully equipped for the hardships that we might face, but we will grow stronger in faith through experiencing them.
Throughout my past three years of helping out in this fellowship, I have gained more than what I have given out. I have learned more from serving than I have from being served. Therefore, I myself want to use this opportunity to grow in faith through serving. I also urge others to actively be a servant under the great commission of Christ, so that we ourselves will be more mature together under Christ.
God have given me several gifts and traits that I am grateful for. Through the love of Christ, I can be sympathetic and attentive to others’ needs and concerns. He had also given me a peaceful mind and forbearance characteristic whilst under stressful circumstance. I will need to work on always being faithfulness among hardships that I might face in the future. I also found myself lacks in being talkative to others, and the skills for leadership. I pray that God will train me and mold me to a better self in the coming days.
How can we best support/care for you?
I hope that I would seek for support among peers whenever I needed help. Thoughtful regards will be a loving support to me. I want to learn how to be a more faithful person through serving with my peers or mentor. Mindful advice or reprove would be helpful if you see any wrong doings. Be loving and work together under Christ.
