MATTHEW 18:19 & 20
19.) I PROMISE that when any two of you on earth agree about something you are praying for, my father in heaven will do it for you. 20.) Whenever two, or three of you come together in my name, I am there with you.

BEAUTIFUL FEET!
ROMANS 10:14-15
14.) How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
15.) And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!"

BEAUTIFUL FEET!
Last Sunday I went to the little Christian Church in which I am creating designs for my internship. I was invited to a Thanksgiving gathering and the church service.
There was a speaker there who, ironically, travels to colleges to start bible studies and Christian campus groups. He was a very good speaker and spoke of David and Goliath and the battle that we have on our college campuses.
I am always grateful for those who take Jesus to college!
 I wish a million times over that there had been a Christian support group at the college I had ever attended, for while the college itself was a fine college, there were influences there such as witchcraft and drugs and alcohol. Musicians played their music in the Student Union enticing the young students to a life of sin and darkness. and very little of Jesus was found on that campus.
The Apostle Paul describe men of God as having [beautiful feet], and this is how I describe the men and women who carry their Christian mission to the college campus.
I think that many Universities have Christians support groups and invite speakers to their campus; however, it is the smaller colleges, trade schools and vocational schools that are terribly neglected when it comes to supporting the young adults on campus, in their Christian pursuit and in bringing young adults to find and know the Lord, so this I ask of you -  please write to any Godly speaker that you know is of God, and invite him or her to speak at your local college, and do encourage your local college to provide a Christian support group on your local campus.

THE TEACHER who doesn't believe in God or Jesus!
"You will not say the word God in my classroom!" This could actually happen in a secular college or university!
They sometimes scare the young Christians in their classroom! FROM time to time you will find teachers and professors like this. They are a challenge to anyone's faith, and an influence in the wrong direction. This is why it is especially important to have supportive groups and adults who understand how important your Christianity and commitment to Jesus is. There are many considerations that you have to make in a secular school, some of which may be unpleasant. It is better to go to a Christian college, however, if you can not do that, than you must make an effort to build up your faith with prayer groups, bible study and adults who are strong in the Christian faith.

This is a very good book for the new, beginning Christian. Miriam explains many things about the bible and the Christian faith. Actually, this is a good book for anyone. It doesn't hurt to review.

College Students Need Your Prayers!
I was meeting with my tutor to work on lessons and we were studying on a table in the hallway, really a combination entrance way, hallway and large enough to be a study room.
Students would drift in and out and between classes the room would fill and the noise level rise.
That is  when my tutor and I take a break and rest for a few minutes. Most of the students were young although these days you can just as easily find older students of all ages. The students were dancing, talking and one girl had tears in her eyes. Unfortunately one young couple was leaning against the wall making out.
I suddenly realized that these young students needed prayers. I felt very strongly that I should pray for them. So I bowed my head and prayed silently- [My tutor is a Christian and she did not chide me]- As I prayed I felt one of those rare moments where it seemed as if Jesus presence were all around. When I lifted up my head, The couple making out had stopped, the girl with tears in her eyes had dry eyes, and somehow the students had formed a circle around the room and were looking at me. I don't know what they  were thinking, but I could feel the presence of the Lord throughout that room. Then they scattered and went to their classes. I'm not too sure anyone was saved that day but I clearly heard them mentioning the word Jesus in the next few moments, more than I had in that school the entire week.
College students clearly need us to remember them in prayer. While they may seem to be light hearted and happy, the weight of the world may be on their shoulders. We do not know the troubles they live with, the fears they have, the pressures and temptations they live with, and many college students do not know the Lord as their Savior. We should save an allotted  time each week to pray for college students. Even the Christian college student needs our prayer. Please consider praying for college students both Christian and non-Christian!

Psalm 113:5
Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high.

The entire campus was caught up in the Supreme Light movement. Two men claimed to be privy to special insights, and they had developed an amazing following in a very short time. Kevin couldn't believe so many of his friends had bought into it so completely. As far as he could see, neither one of the men had that much to give. All they preached was instant gratification and total forgiveness for all sin, whether repented or not. For Kevin's money, Jesus Christ would suffice. Long after these two jokers were gone, Christ would still be around. New ideologies pop up all the time, but none offer as much as Christ offers. There was absolutely nothing to be gained by settling for less than Jesus. Nothing to gain, but everything to lose.

Prayer:

Lord, I hear of new answers to life's problems all the time, and some are quite tempting. Help me to remember that I have all the answer I need in You. Amen  [report anonymous abuse]  [ accepted]

ROMANS 14:13-22
13.) We must stop judging others. We must also make up our minds not to upset anyone's faith. 14.) The Lord Jesus made it clear to me that God considers all foods fit to eat, But if you think some foods are not fit to eat, then for you they are not fit.
15.) If you are hurting others by the food you eat, you are not guided by love. Don't let your appetite destroy someone Christ died for. 16.) Don't let your right to eat bring shame to Christ.
17.) God's Kingdom isn't about eating and drinking. It is about pleasing God, living in peace, and about true happiness. All this comes from the Holy Spirit. 18.) If you serve Christ in this way, you will please God and be respected by people. 19.) We should try to live at peace and help each other live a strong faith.
20.) Don't let your appetite destroy what God has done. All foods are fit to eat, but it is wrong to cause problems for others by the food you eat. 21.) It is best not to eat meat, or drink wine or do anything else that causes problems for other followers of the Lord. 22.) What you believe about these things should be kept between you and God.

7.) Honor God by accepting each other as Christ has accepted you. 8.) I tell you that Christ has come as a servant of the Jews to show that God has kept the promises he has made to their famous ancestors. Christ also came, 9.) so that the Gentiles would praise God for being kind to them. It is just as the scriptures say,
"I will tell the nations
about you,
and I will sing praises
to your name."

10.) The scriptures also say to the Gentiles, "Come and celebrate with God's people."

11.) Again the Scriptures say,
"Praise the Lord,
all you Gentiles.
All you nations come
and worship him."

Psalm 91:11,12 God will command his angels to protect you wherever you go.
They will carry you in their arms, and you won't hurt your feet on the stones. (CEV)
Should we worship angels? No!
Romans 1:25 They gave up the truth about God for a lie, and they worshiped God's creation instead of God, who will be praised forever. Amen!
Do angels convict us of sin? no!
John 16:7&8 7.)But I tell you that I am going to do what is best for you. That is why I am going away! The Holy Spirit can not come to help you until I leave. But after I am gone I will send the spirit to you. 8.) The Spirit will come and show the people of this world the truth about sin, because they didn't have faith in me. The Holy Spirit convicts of sin, instead!
Angels are messengers! Angels are guardians! and Angels are given authority in certain cases, by God! Angels also belong to vast armies of God!
And angels serve God and Jesus, doing whatever commanded of them.

18.) Don't be cheated by people who make a show of being humble and worship angels. They brag about seeing visions but it is all nonsense because their mind is filled with selfish desires. 19.) They are no longer part of Christ, who is the head of the whole body. Christ gives the body it's strength, and he uses it's joints and muscles to hold it together, as it grows by the power of God.

1.) Welcome all the Lord's followers, even those whose faith is weak. Don't criticize them for having beliefs that are different from yours.
2.) Some think it's alright to eat anything, while those whose faith is weak will only eat vegetables. 3.) But you should not criticize others for eating; or for not eating. After all God welcomes everyone. 4.) What right do you have to criticize someone's elses servants. Only their Lord can decide if they are doing right and the Lord
5.) Some of the Lord's followers think one day is more important than another.  Others think that all days are the same. But each of you should make up your own mind. 6.) Any followers who count one day more important than another do it to honor their Lord. And any followers who eat meat give thanks to God, just like the one's who don't eat meat.

I have only one word to describe college campus! Chaos!
College campus can be chaotic, noisy, full of commotion, You can hear fighting, laughing, gossip, swearing, constant noise. There is hardly a quiet or private area in which to concentrate in. And many campus's simply do not have a chapel to meditate or pray in.
So my suggestion is to make an earnest search in the community to find and area where you can pray in private, meditate on Jesus, read the bible and just worship the Lord! This may not be easy, I myself have not found such a place. In the early fall, you might be able to find a park which is quiet and lends to meditation on Jesus and prayer. Or if you are very lucky to live at home or have your own place, you might be able to create a pleasant prayer and meditation room[to meditate on Jesus and Christian scripture!]
But if you live on campus or share with other room mates you may have to look further for a quiet place. Sometimes you will find nearby churches. Make an appointment with the pastor or priest of that church and ask if there is a area or room you can use to pray and read the bible. To regain your sanity, peace of mind, focus on Jesus and read scripture. To regain your serenity, and to renew your Christian spirituality! Which can be done on a daily basis!
You might be surprised! Many pastors, ministers, priests, men and women of God will be thrilled that a college student is considering God in such a serious commitment.  This is at least one solution. Or you may know of another place which you can use for an hour a day, just to spend with the Lord. It may be difficult but it will be worth it!

CHRISTIAN
SCHOOLS!
My opinion is that Christian schools are the better choice. I'm not saying that they are perfect. Or that you will never find drinking and other sinful activities.
However, it seems that you will find a more supportive and spiritual atmosphere, along with encouragement to follow Jesus and follow Christian principles.  Depending on the college you should find teachers and counselors openly encouraging the study of the word of God [bible studies, prayer meetings and fellowship.]
The classes will reflect the Christian belief and ungodly activities will be strongly discouraged.
This is one option for those who do not want to send their young adults to secular schools

OLDER CHRISTIAN COLLEGE STUDENTS!
So here you are; back in school or maybe even for the first time. Older than the majority of students and non traditional.
Not quite fitting in and perhaps new in town. Even if your not new in town, everything is overwhelming. You feel out of place, a little or a lot insecure. You may have health problems, you now have glasses, if your a man you may have thinning hair.
While young students are talking about their week end date, you are concerned about your adult children  and grandchildren.
It may be the first time you've used a computer and everything is different.
Do you even have time for a spiritual life? You must have time for a spiritual life. Without Jesus there is no life, and without spending time with Jesus you become drug down. But you are too old for Campus life and the young adult groups. What do you do. Besides church, there are sometimes campus bible studies and prayer meetings for older adults. Sometimes a ladies or man's Christian lunch which includes prayer and bible readings. If not you can do something, you can start a bible study or prayer meeting, a sunset breakfast prayer meeting, a lunch for Christians, or other Christian meeting. You have that choice. Some colleges have a meeting room that you reserve. Some colleges will even post your meetings for free or a small fee.
If not you can find a place close to the college, or if your in a small town maybe a church or restaurant.
Please understand that being older and/non-traditional does not mean that you are left out. There is much you can do.
And with the stresses of college life and family life, work and studies, you really need to spend time with Jesus [and brothers and sisters!]

MULTICULTURAL AND INTERNATIONAL PRAYER GROUPS AND BIBLE STUDIES!
Many college and universities have exchange programs, both national and international. If you do decide to begin a prayer meeting or bible study on campus be certain to invite exchange students and students from other states and  countries.
You should also be sure to invite people from all races, cultures, and backgrounds.
As you continue to study the New Testament you will discover that this is a completely biblical principle, as well as nice and a kindness.

Finding brothers and sisters on campus!
When you are new on campus, it's hard to know who is an actively involved Christian, and where college Christian organizations are held. Some places a person might look are:
1.] The hallway bulletin board!
2.] Campus office or counselors office!
3.] The school newspaper!
4.] The campus student e-mail or the internet!
5.] The Local communities newspaper!
6.] Perhaps some of the local churches have the information you need.
7.] The local chamber of commerce!
8.] Large cities might have these organizations in the phone book!
9.] Sometimes, if your really lucky, you will receive a personal invitation, but many times you must do the searching yourself!
10.] You might have to find a nearby church that provides these groups and studies!

Another possible solution is to find a nearby church [to the campus] and to ask the minister or pastor what kind of college support and programs and groups for young adults.
You may find a supportive and interesting church where young college adults and older teenagers can meet and find support.
It is important for the parents of an older teen or young adult, to become supportive of these programs[ such as campus life]. If there are no campus programs and no churches nearby, then try to get one started. At least offer bible studies and pray meetings along with good, clean, fun activities once in awhile, for the college student.

A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!
Today I saw that light walking right in front of me on campus!  A young adult with a Christian emblem on his shirt!
Young Christians grouping together to stay strong in Christ! I asked him about his shirt just to be sure and yes he is a Christian and yes he has a mission. If you can not send your children to a Christian college, than look for Christian campus groups, such as Campus Life and other campus groups for young adults. Don't forget us older adults, if you can't find a Christian group for older adults see if you can get something going! Counter the evil one and the world with Jesus!

COLLEGE LIFE...
Drinking has always been a problem;however, many situations have arisen that has worsened the situation. New drugs and other complications.
I suppose that since the 1960's that witchcraft groups have been popular and there can be pressure or harassment from this groups. If nothing else they can be a negative influence.
We have  freedom of religion however, sometimes Christians are sometimes criticized, berated, and even denied their rights.
The community college was created for the low income and the average student, but I have noticed that some teachers are not encouraging nor helping the students who are slower or need extra help. It's a big race to have the perfect student, but even the gifted lose out when this attitude is perpetuated.
 Not all of us can go to Yale or Harvard. And yet, more and more even small campus colleges have gotten caught in competition and pressure and many average student, are left behind. Even though there are laws the disabled are treated badly. I attended one class[at my present community college] where at least half the students either dropped out or failed. This is not acceptable.

A DISCUSSION ABOUT COLLEGE CAMPUS LIFE!
This is a good time to have discussions about college and the campus' that exist.
In this day and age things are getting rough, at some colleges at least.
People are rude, [and nasty], teachers are not as patient and understanding as they used to be. And you can't say the word God, in some schools anyway. While some colleges and universities are becoming better at helping the disabled, others are going backwards, and chaos ensues.
Some professors will even tell you that Jesus isn't real, but what is worse is the professor who claims to be a Christian, but does not live the live of a Christian and does not have the love and wisdom of Jesus.
When I went to Central Community College in Hastings things were different,  Although things may have changed since it's been awhile.  Community colleges were created for the average ability or low income student but some community colleges have forgotten this.
And you will hardly ever hear compassion on campus anymore, where I live. No where will you hear about being kind, helping the homeless, showing a light to a ghetto child, but rather, you hear hate, revenge, intolerance and indifference.
This is what you are sending your child to on a secular campus. Not only that, but you will find cults, atheists, drug pushers, gamblers, and people that are just plain mean. Some of this has always existed but ....it seems that things are worse now.
