Last May 17, 2014, my family and I attended a one-day conference with Dr. Ravi Zacharias, Krish Dhanam and Dr. Nabeel Qureshi at the CCF Center. It was entitled “Unshakable: Standing Firm in Changing Times”. The humble speakers shared about the principles they have been learning from God’s word, their experiences in sharing God to others, and their testimonies and encounters with Him.
I have listed down some of the encouraging things they have shared at the conference. May these encourage you too. Have a blessed day! :)
Pray before making decisions.
Learn to shift through life and steer the things that do not matter.
You have to learn to start. Don’t just stand there. Do something.
A half-baked job is a no-no. Swerve. Do your best.
Outlove the people around you. Show them Jesus – who is most powerful in life.
Take one step at a time: Person to prepare, Passion to pursue, and Price to pay.
DR. NABEEL QURESHI:
God intentionally created you. You are not a purposeless piece of carbon.
Ground yourself and know your Creator. Start fueling your life with what God has designed for you.
God has crafted you to be a world-changer. All things can be done for others. All things can be done through Jesus.
You’re here to produce, not just to consume.
Keep your eyes on the cross.
Taking God’s name in vain: You carry the name of Christ. Live like Christ and don’t take His name in vain.
Bring your shame and your past to the light. And in the light, walk with Christ and He will use you to be a blessing to others.
You have eternity secured in Christ. How are you using your time here on earth if you’re too focused on youself?
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4) – Delighting in Him means loving Him with everything that you have, knowing Him, and studying His Word more. Then, God will craft the desires in our hearts.
DR. RAVI ZACHARIAS:
A calling is that position in your life that brings and converges your disciplines, convictions, and desires in life.
Whatever you do, wherever you are, do it in the name of God and treat it with honor.
God is always within reach from wherever you are.
We see the awesome power of God when we understand and see His exactitude in all (our bodies, the earth, the universe).
You are building memories. Make good ones.
Take seriously what God can do through you.
How is your prayerlife?
The way back to any broken relationship is the communion with God.
It is vitally important to choose the right partner. Seek God’s wisdom and do the right thing with the partner you choose.
Encourage yourself one treat at a time. :)
