Shiloh University Commencement Ceremony 2017

Today, I brought the commencement address for the 4th annual graduation for Shiloh University. Jesus taught that the foremost commandment is, “‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself’” (Mark 12:30-31). This passage reveals that the root of our faith is a deep love.

This love for God has been imparted to the graduates by the professors of this university. A true relationship with God is imparted more than it is ever taught. Beyond a diploma, these graduates have gained a true relationship with the Lord. Beyond a conclusion of study, today is the beginning of imparting to others what they have received. Let this deep love and relationship with the Lord become a primary focus and purpose in our lives.
