May I also encourage the National & State Students Cells to plan some programs where you can share the joy of being a student, record the same and share on UESI official Instagram page and FB. For more details on this please connect with Media cell of CND.
Students are the centre of world attraction as they are the agents of change. Whether the change is for good or bad depends on the influence. Through the generations it is being witnessed how students especially in the post-matric world have influenced and brought change. Needless to say, these changes are based on certain ideologies and philosophies through which young minds are influenced and held captive.
In such a context, the university mission becomes significant as young minds are ignited with godly wisdom and values which promotes love, care, and harmony to the world that they live in. In addition to this the students become agents of change in the specific areas of their studies/profession thus joining with the Redeemer in redeeming the world from the slavery of death and decay to life everlasting thus engaging the world with the Word of God in the plan of God.
The saying, ‘Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders’ has changed to ‘Today’s students are the leaders’. Students form a significant part of the world order and this calls for our urgent attention in building them up under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
As we progress in our ministry, let us remind ourselves of our calling not just to be people who conduct programs/events but committed to bring the Kingdom of God in the universities and colleges of our country and the world at large. Let us be intentional in our approach in engaging with students having conversations over the big and small matters which can bring lasting impact in their own life and others who come in touch with them. Let us consider building witnessing groups in campuses standing tall in their faith, convictions and character thus providing a credible Biblical alternative to various philosophies and ideologies they come across.
In Mark’s Gospel, the Lord speaking to his disciples said, “you are the salt and light of the world…” (Mt 5:13-16) Being the enlightened ones let us make every effort not to hide the light within us rather enlighten others through the light ignited in us. Let us impart the vision to our believing students to be a light in the campuses.
