What we were called to do...




The author talks about the kingdom of God on earth. How we as Christians can participate in the enlarging of His kingdom.
He keep saying the purpose or the value of college education is for us to help you find and prepare for our vocation. In other words he is saying that college education is meant to prepare me for prime citizenship in the kingdom of God.

I really like when he says “ Christian college community that cares as much about the kind of person you are becoming as what kind of job you will eventually get, and as much about how you will do your job about which job you do.”

Yes I do believe in this statement because I think that Calvin does an outstanding job for its students. It cares, it supports and it mentors. Calvin strives to teach students to be good citizenships of His kingdom and on Earth, good stewards and loving people. So for me it has been a great joy being on campus and seeking for opportunities to grow in different areas.

Thank you Calvin.

Dear Samuel,

Thanks for your comments; I love the artistic aspect of your blog too! Yes, you are right, there are ‘way more’ aspects to going to college than just the ‘amassing knowledge’ or ‘having fun’ as some others like to think. “A real college community is one that cares as much about the kind of person you are becoming as what kind of job you will eventually get, and as much about how you will do your job about which job you do”. It also calls for another quote, now from God’s Word “everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:48)!

God Bless and be a blessing (Genesis 12:2-3)!
