What is your favorite Bible verse and why?
One of my favorite passages is the return of Christ in Revelation 19:11-16 that says, “11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. 12 His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. 13 He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.15 From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will [d]rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the [e]wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. 16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
This picture of Christ returning as the all-powerful King is what fuels us today as His people to live for Him and to fix our eyes upon that day that He receives all that He owns! I go here often to remember how history all ends and to remind myself of this moment, when Christ comes to take all that is His.
How did your college experience change you?
I consider my time at TMU one of the most impactful times in my life, both intellectually and spiritually. As a Biblical Studies major, it was here that I really learned how to approach the Bible as the Word of God, meaning that it’s God’s book about His glories in Christ, and I began learning how to shed the often-selfish approach that I took to my daily reading. I learned to rejoice in GOD’s story as it displayed Christ, and then how I could play a role in that story by living for Christ now. My studies here under the Bible profs have shaped the way I’ve learned and loved the Bible.
