We’re taking a break from our normal Storyline series that goes through the whole Bible, and we’re going to look at the Doctrine of Providence for this month in our Framework series.  I don’t want our student ministry to just be about “love Jesus”.  I also want us to know the truth of Jesus from His Word.  So we’re taking a long, hard look at what providence is and what it means for our lives.  We call this series Framework because we want God’s timeless truths to be the Framework structure that holds our lives, faith, and thoughts together.  We’re tackling super tough questions in this series, so I hope you enjoy it with us!

Have you ever gotten that haunting feeling that you forgot something that you needed, or worse yet…you left something on (like the oven) that could burn the house down?  That happened to me when I was in college.  I remember driving home with that nauseous feeling, but trying to wipe it out of my mind like every other time.  But this time, I rounded the corner to my apartment and saw 3 fire trucks outside, lights spinning, spot lights exposing my apartment, and hoses out.  I raced inside to see the damage I caused from leaving on the oven, but nothing in our place was harmed.  Everything was fine.  It was a dryer fire from the apartment beneath us.  Whew!

When we look at the book of Nehemiah, we have to remember that its setting is within a major disaster.  Continue reading

            2009 has been flat-out crunk for CBSM.  We’ve gone on awesome trips including a high school conference at Southern Seminary, Student Life Camp at Covenant College, BASIC Mission trip to Detroit, and ADVANCE Mission Trip to San Diego.  We’ve had great events at our place such as our Back to School Bash, HarvestFEST student night, and our Disciple Now Weekend.  We’ve had crazy stuff happen like having to cancel our All-Nighter because the mayor personally shut us down because of the Swine Flu epidemic.  Over 2009, we’ve witnessed God save several teenagers, several get baptized, some called to full-time ministry, and so many lives changed for the glory of Christ.  Our Wednesday worship services, Sunday AM small groups, and Sunday PM SMT’s have all grown by leaps and bounds.  There is definitely a huge common denominator in all of this.  For the events and trips that totally flopped and epically failed, it has always been because of the poor preaching and teaching of God’s Word.  For the events and trips that were a huge success, it was always because of the awesome preaching of the Word of God. 

            So notice, not only in our student ministry, but also in our lives, how crucial the Word of God is.  Do you understand what the Word of God really is, how true, how powerful, and how beneficial it is?  Do you realize what the Word of God is really getting across to us, really teaching us, and really pointing us towards?  Let me ask you this.  How different would your life look if you really loved, believed, depended on, read, studied, meditated, and obeyed God’s Word on a constant basis?  Do you get how important it is for our lives in order for God to get His truths and wisdom into us?   Continue reading
