PINEVILLE (LBM) — Southern Baptist Convention presidential candidate Ken Hemphill challenged students attending the Louisiana College weekly chapel service Tuesday, March 27, to be available as an instrument to advance His kingdom.
“When you pray, say ‘today Father on campus, let me see what you are about, what you are doing,’” Hemphill said.
Drawing from John 5, Hemphill said to help accomplish this, students can ask God to help them see people as Jesus saw them, to help them respond to the need as He would and to show them where He is working.
“When you ask Him to show you what He’s doing, He will,” Hemphill said.
Hemphill ended his message with a challenge to the students and faculty.
“God is looking for a campus, God is looking for a young man and woman, looking for a faculty person, who will dare to say I will embody your name, I will embrace your mission, and I will obey your will,” Hemphill said.
Hemphill’s appearance at LC is one of three appearances he is making in the state today (March 27) and tomorrow (March 28). He meets with Louisiana Baptists at McClendon Baptist Church in West Monroe this evening at 6:30 p.m.
Wednesday, he will be the featured speaker at a noon luncheon and event at the First Baptist Church in Bossier City. The lunch is free but registration is requested by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The chapel service will be livestreamed at lacollege.edu/content/livestream-chapel-spring-2018.
The First Bossier luncheon will be streamed live on the church’s Facebook page, facebook.com/firstbossier.
