Noted Christian apologist and author Alex McFarland spoke to Liberty University students at a convocation event held at the Lynchburg, Virginia campus on Monday morning.
During his remarks, McFarland gave those attending his speech four important thoughts on living as a Christian in modern America.
McFarland’s four thoughts for the students were “view the Great Commission with a sense of personal investment,” “follow Jesus even at the risk of being misunderstood,” “the limitations of the sheep are overcome by the power of the Shepherd,” and that “before the prize there comes a price.”
On the issue of viewing evangelism with a personal investment McFarland told the students that “God is going to use you” even if they do not become overseas missionaries.
“View the Great Commission with a sense of having some skin in the game. ‘Lord use me.’ ‘Father cleanse me, fill me, send me, use me,'” said McFarland. “God wants to do things in your life and through your life that will count for eternity.”
