God’s dynamic provision
1. The Scriptures
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God . . . that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17, NKJV).
The degree to which we get students into the Word and the Word into the students, will be the degree to which they are effectively equipped to communicate the truth.
2. The Holy Spirit
“Jesus said, ‘But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses . . . ’” (Acts 1:8, NKJV).
The degree to which we know the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit, will be the degree to which we are bold, effective witnesses.
3. Prevailing Prayer
“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16, NKJV).
The degree to which prevailing prayer permeates all aspects of the ministry will be the degree to which God works in power.
4. Great Commission Churches
“. . . when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away” (Acts 13:1-3).
The degree to which students have a vital church experience will be the degree to which they will be effective in helping plant the church around the world.
5. Willing Gifted Workers
“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, . . . prophets, . . . evangelists, . . . pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ”(Ephesians 4:11-12).
The degree to which we discover and train workers to minister to students will be the degree to which we equip the church to “reach the world that has come to us.”
