A Great Day of Ministry at UCLA

Yesterday was a great day of ministry on the UCLA campus. I was joined by Matt and Roxanne De Jesus, and students Jimmy Revelino and Kaspars Ozolins--two brilliant and godly young man who are passionate about reaching the lost with the gospel.

Together, we distributed more than 500 gospel tracts and 21 ESV bibles.

Several Christian students were encouraged by my open-air preaching, which led to a wonderful time of fellowship and discipleship.

I was blessed to have to in-depth conversations with two unsaved students--Eli and Miles. My conversation with Eli came as the result of offering him a Bible, as he walked up Bruin Walk. My conversation with Miles came as a result of my open-air preaching. Typically, I don't stop preaching and engage in a one-to-one conversation because often times the motivation of the questioner is to distract me and interrupt the preaching. But, from time to time, someone will quietly approach me while I'm preaching and I will have a sense by their demeanor that their inquiry is genuine. Such was the case with Miles.

Here are my conversations with Eli and Miles.

  1. Building monuments to yourself

    "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit" Philippians 2:3

    No grace shines more brightly in a Christian, than humility. Wherever SELF comes in — it mars the beauty of the work we are doing. Seek to do your work quietly. Do not try to draw attention to yourself, to make people know that you did this or that beautiful thing. Be content to pour your rich life into other wasted, weary lives, and see them blessed and made more holy — and then withdraw and let Christ have the honor. Work for God's approval, and even then, do not think much about reward. Seek to be a blessing to others — and never think of self-advancement. Do not worry about credit for your work, or about building monuments to yourself; be content to do good in Christ's name.

    "Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved — clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." Colossians 3:12

    "All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another" 1 Peter 5:5

    IF you truly belong to Christ, you will STOP the continued 'self-promotion' that you incessantly do all over the internet. Your constant bragging and self-exaltation is very telling Mr. Miano. You reek of arrogance and self-worth, spewing out empty words of humility then turning around and proving those words to be false by your actions. God have mercy on you.
