It is about that time of the year again. We will be graduating another class of students tonight. It is always a privilege to see many of them enter into the University of Michigan as freshmen and have the opportunity to influence them for the Gospel sake.
It has always been our vision to transform lost people into Christ’s disciples who will then transform the world. Tonight, we will hear many testimonies of people’s lives that were transformed by God’s grace. We will commission them to go forth and transform the world wherever they may go in the future.
I always get mixed feelings during the Graduation Service. On one hand, I get sad knowing that many of them will be leaving us and moving on but then on the other hand, it is exciting to know that they will make a difference throughout the world.
Our loss will always be someone else’s gain.
We are privileged just to know that we had a part in their lives.
