A man deserted Napoleon’s army and was sentenced to death. The man’s wife went to Napoleon and asked him to spare the life of her husband. Napoleon replied, “Your husband deserves to die. Give me one reason why I should spare his life.” The woman answered, “I can give you no reason why you should spare him. That is why I am asking for mercy.”
An instructor shared this in class and challenged me to think about Christ’s love for us. John 15:13 says, “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” It is a great measure of love that we come to the knowledge of this beautiful truth.
It is indeed a blessing to be in a university that seeks to produce Christ-centered leaders for the transformation of God’s people and the world. Christian instructors in the classroom and discussions with classmates encourage us to integrate our faith with our learning so that we can be salt and light in our fields of study.
The chaplains in the community life department provide additional opportunities for spiritual growth with chapel services three days a week, Grace Group fellowships every Friday, the Christian Union and Sunday services. As we experience the love and mercy of Christ through these warm interactions, we are equipped to extend his love to the world.
