Perspective

Current Issue

March 2019

The process of spiritual formation, or growing mature in Christ (Eph. 4:15), involves engaging in specific practices and disciplines that will help us move toward that goal. In this issue of Perspective, the focus is on engaging in Scripture, individually and communally, in our spiritual formation. The feature article, ‘Building Your Life on a Solid Foundation’ challenges us to examine the foundation of our lives and make the necessary re-alignments so that we are more ‘well formed’ and not merely ‘well informed’. Transformed and not merely gaining knowledge. In line with this, we asked some of our students to share their stories on how the Word has transformed their lives and the struggles they face in the process.

We are also excited to share with you our plans to commemorate FES’ 60th Anniversary. Do join us in praying and participating in this very significant event in our history.

HOW TO HEAR GOD BETTER?

 

Young people in the workforce today are often stressed. Increasingly, they are disappointed and disillusioned in the workplace. As a result, many of them find greater freedom doing their own thing or starting their own business.

STUDENTS TRANSFORMED BY THE WORD

 

Reading and studying the Bible can be done privately or in a community of fellow believers in the context of the Christian Fellowship (CF) and church group we belong to. God will give growth when we approach the Bible with a prayerful attitude and an openness to allow Him to transform us through Scripture.
