Myles Hutton: Glenville State College Student

“…your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour.”

I Peter 5:8

 This statement is very true for the Christian today.  Everyday we are faced with temptation and a strong defense must be built to fend off these attacks. The best defense is one where it is not built alone, but when people come together to achieve a common goal. This is exactly what Baptist Campus Ministry is to me at Glenville State College. It is a group of individuals who know me, encourage me and stretch me in my walk with Christ.  It is a place for me to put aside whatever I may be going through and realign my focus back to serving our awesome God. Some days, the stress and discouragement from school and sin cause me to doubt the truth. In His goodness, God will use the study from BCM to encourage my heart with the exact reassurance I need. Coming into BCM discouraged and unexcited about life, I leave refreshed and excited about being a Christian. I have been reminded of the truth and that I am not alone in this fight! God has called us together to worship Him, to teach, to exhort, to console and to serve each other. To me Baptist Campus Ministry is not just a group of people to hang out with; it is a band of fellow believers who encourage me in my Christian walk, and provide an opportunity in which I can synergize with other Christians to further the cause of Christ together.

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”

Hebrews 10:25
