Senior-Junior Meet n’ Greet

Filed under: CA Updates — campusalive @ 10:15 pm

Tomorrow marks the beginning of a new semester of Campus Alive meetings! No, it’s not going to be the first official meeting at the good ole’ Atmosphere of New Life Restoration Centre, rather it’s a very casual ‘Meet n’ Greet’ between seniors and juniors.

It’s probably a little late to be ‘promoting’ this gathering, but at any rate, here are the details:

Time: 6.45pm (Akasia), 7.00pm (Cendana)

Venue: Akasia bus stop, Cendana guardhouse

For girls, bring your eating utensils! Bowls, plates, forks, spoons, chopsticks…Anything you are comfortable eating with (although chopsticks can probably be out of the picture). And don’t forget to bring your own cup, as we’ll be serving some special drinks as well.

For the guys, well, “bring yourselves,” is suffice for me to say. =D

It’s going to be a blessed time of fellowship, food, fun, food, getting-to-know-yous, food and well…food!

And so, my dearests, I shall see you tomorrow, no?

I get the feeling that this post shall only be viewed after the gathering tomorrow though. But as they always say, “better than late then never”.

Sweet blessings =)

2 Peter 1:5-8

Filed under: Please Note — campusalive @ 1:10 pm

Helloooooo peeps! It’s into the final two weeks of A-levels examination for us seniors and we just finished the toughest leg (Unit 4 for 3 straight days). Mind-boggling, brain-busting, and totally tiring. But God is good and his love endures forever. I was constantly reminded of His strength as I read His word and was encouraged by calls, smses and wishes from people. I just want to share a passage from the Word (spiritual food, yum!) for you to digest and apply to your life. 

2 Peter 1:5-8

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

the Bread of Lives

Peter presents us with a list of character attributes we should develop in our lives. Before this verse he talked about God’s power being “everything we need” to live a godly life, and that God gives us “great and precious promises” that help us to escape “the world’s corruption”. You can refer to your Bibles for a more complete reading.

So in VIEW of His promises, knowing that our lives are to be “shining like stars” (Philippians 2:15), we can start relying on HIM to mold us. We are commanded to shine!

Character isn’t easily developed when we do it on our own strengths. We try to be nice. We try to be patient with that roommate who has habits that disgust us. We try to avoid watching the wrong stuff online. We try we try we try and we fail. Because we’re not drawing from and drawing near to the Lord. So look back at the verse. Make every effort. That effort draws from the promises of God and his power in our lives.

I like verse 8. By possessing these qualities, we’ll become effective and productive in the knowledge of Christ! You see, it’s possible to KNOW Christ and not bear fruit. Are our lives dry? Do we go from day to day in a routine. When you’re dry and empty, the way to go is Christ. The living well. And in the practical sense, when we’ve been filled with God’s love, when we’re motivated and inspired by what He’s done in our lives, things change. Change because we begin to see people differently, and that’s when we begin to touch lives. We see “touch lives” as cliche. Every pastor says it. But do we really touch lives? Ask yourselves. I also constantly check on my own living too, so yep! It’s a journey we’re all living here.

bear fruits...

Well, that’s all for now. God bless all of you. I may not see some of you before I leave next week. Will miss all of you dearly. It’s CA that made INTEC so much like home.

Love in Christ,

Larry

Ode to Juniors

Filed under: Please Note,Testimony — campusalive @ 11:33 pm

This ode is of course, a metaphorical one. It’s more of a letter, or a note to the juniors. This post is dedicated to the juniors of 2010. Welcome to a new phase of your life. =)

Dearest Juniors,

It is with an excited and loving heart that we, your seniors, welcome you to this place. It’s a new place, a new environment, with new friends; and probably a whole list of things beginning with ‘new’ can be written out (or in this case, typed out).

See, we’re new too; to this role of being a senior. We’ve had awesome seniors who have blessed us so much during their time here at INTEC. And we just want to bless you as we’ve been blessed. Personally, I’m entirely grateful and thankful that I got to come here and not another college. There have been just too many blessings that I simply would not trade my college time here for any other college life.

Perhaps on seeing the conditions of the not-so-perfect facilities here, you might feel a little scared and most probably homesick. It’s normal. And you’re not alone. What we want you to know is that, you’re welcomed in this place and that this is going to be an unforgettable journey. We’re here for you, and if even the slightest doubt begins to nag at the back of your mind, let us know.

Ask questions, learn, absorb, enjoy and cherish your time here. Because, believe me, it flies fast. Very fast. And after all, we only get to have a college or pre-university life once in this lifetime.

With love,

Jan =)
