As the new school year begins, we reflect on the budding ministry of two new Seventh-day Adventists. Cori and Anthony are Music students at Michigan State University. At our last LEADS event, we were able to witness Cori’s decision to give her life to Christ through baptism. Doing so was challenging. She was using her talents to help various performing artists and she wondered if the cost of discipleship was worth it. We’re thankful that she came to the conclusion that heaven is cheap enough. The sacrifices we make for Christ are not really sacrifices at all — especially in the light of what He has given up for us.
But what do we give up, when we give all? A sin-polluted heart, for Jesus to purify, to cleanse by His own blood, and to save by His matchless love.
(Steps to Christ p. 46)
Anthony is a saxophone player. A son of a Baptist minister, he was acquainted with church life and ministry. According to his testimony, he hit a transitional period in his life when he realized the power of music. While playing his sax during the church service, he realized that certain runs on his instrument provoked specific responses. This wasn’t the moving of the Holy Spirit, it was a moving caused by man’s talent. Through an appointment specifically set up by the God of the universe, Anthony met Carlot — an Adventist trumpeter. They studied the Bible together and the rest became history.
Baptism is not a graduation. It is not an end, but a beginning. As the Apostle Paul became known by his first convert, Sergius Paulus, our prayer is that these two young people will be known — not by the talents they posses — but by the people they lead to the foot of the cross.
