Making a Decision

Making a decision can be one of the most trying ordeals any person can go through. Should I or shouldn’t I? What if I do? What if I don’t? Hopefully making a decision to be a Campus Missionary was not that difficult for you. Scripture is clear about our calling to represent Christ in our everyday lives. The Apostle Paul felt it was a high calling and stated, “I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24 ESV). Paul had made the decision to devote his life to Christ, and that directed the course of his life.

The decision to be a Campus Missionary makes a lot of other decisions easier. When faced with pressure to do something you know to be wrong—like cheating on a test, gossiping about someone, or telling a lie—the decision has already been made. You’ve already decided not to do any of those things because you are a Campus Missionary. Just as the Apostle Paul’s choice to devote his life to Christ drove him “to testify to the gospel” and to finish his race strong, so your decision to become a Campus Missionary helps set the direction of your future decisions. Remember, we “do not account” our lives of value, except that we may Pray, Live, Tell, Serve, and Give for Jesus Christ on our campus.
