Developing the Right Standing with God – The Book of Romans

For the whole semester, our chapel preaching, devotions and ministry is basing on the book of Romans and the theme is; “Developing the right standing with God” As a Christian University, we continue to empower our students with Christian ministry and help them draw closer to God. We will be focusing on one’s personal development in Christ and spiritual growth of the general LIU community. Our ministry activities include community outreach, charity, church visits, foot washing exercise, night prayers, the spiritual emphasis week and will continue throughout this semester as well.

Bible verses tailored for you from the book of Romans

Romans 1:16 (NIV)

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile

Romans 6:23 (NIV)

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 3:23-26 (NIV)

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.

Spiritual Emphasis Week: 27-31 March 2017

It has been a blessed week with Rev. Medad Birungi from World Shine Ministry who shared with us the word of God and great principles that can help man serve God well. These included;

Holiness, Repentance, Strong Prayer, Scripture reading, Fellowship, Forgiveness, Service, Integrity, Courage, Humble, Visionary, Wisdom, Worship, Soul winning and Eschatology.

The theme was: For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)

We also hosted Pastor Nancy A. Ahairwe, a Human Resource Manager at Compassion International who shared how focusing on God can help man serve better and how dangerous it is to serve without belief in Christ.

It has been a week full of prayer, praise, worship and sharing experience and the word of God.
