Chapel Service: Bob Botsford (Alumni) - February 20

Audio 5a consists of the following recording:
Title: Bob Botsford (alumnus) on Obeying the Call of God
TWU Alumnus Bob Botsford speaks during a chapel service. He speaks in an informal way, often rephrasing scripture with a modern context in order to reach his audience. He focuses first on his work with Youth Development International ( YDI ) and the possibility of developing a Youth Development International outpost at Trinity Western University. He reads from John Chapter 2, recounting the story of how Jesus turned water into wine. He focuses on the way Jesus takes the attention away from the bride, but in a positive way. The other point he draws from this story is that the servants are told by Mary, no mater what Jesus asks of you - just do it. The theme of obedience permeates the rest of Mr. Botsford’s talk. He then relates a story from Matthew 21 which involves the obedience of two sons to their father. From this story he extracts the point that even if what is asked of the individual is difficult, in the end it is only by following through on the command of the Lord that individuals are rewarded. Mr. Botsford encourages his audience to always follow the call of the Lord, to always keep Jesus present, and to be aware of one’s responsibilities to God. Mr. Botsford relates a personal story about his friend Ed Mitchell helping a deaf child discover Jesus. He again encourages his audience to live their lives placing Jesus Christ first. Finally, Mr. Botsford leads in prayer.
