Dear Cornerstone Partners and friends of CU Lux,

We are blessed by the opportunity to update you on our ministry at Yale. God has been blessing and continues to bless our faith community through a new initiative started a few weeks ago. While diving deep into our summer Bible study of John’s Gospel, we encountered the glorious signs that Jesus performed to manifest God’s glory before and in the lives of his contemporaries. We were in awe of Jesus, amazed at how he embodied the truth and grace of God and inspired us to “do the works” that he did (John 14:12).

With Jesus as a foundation and guide, each member of our community committed to prayerfully memorize one passage of Scripture per week, internalize it every evening, use the morning devotional time to find practical ways to externalize it, and be a living testimony of that passage in every human interaction throughout the day.

The testimonies are many as to how this initiative is transforming our students and the lives of their families and friends. Nothing can be more glorious than having God’s word become a lamp to guide our feet and a light for our path (Psalm 119:105).

Here is a sample of the verses that helped our students embody God’s glory these past two weeks:
  • If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him! (Luke 11:3)
  • The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation (Exodus 15:2)
  • For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit (Romans 8:5)
  • Let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing (James 1:4)
  • Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28)
  • The Lord is my shepherd; I lack nothing (Psalm 23:1)

Thank you for partnering with us in prayer for Yale and the students of Christian Union Lux! Please pray that this initiative will catch on and bring God’s life and glory to the Yale University community.
