Lankford shares lessons from ‘life’s great interruption’
LYNCHBURG, Va. (BP) -- Sen. James Lankford encouraged students during Liberty University's Convocation to focus less on the occupation or location of their lives, but to have their main goal in life to be following God. Lankford, a Southern Baptist and Republican from Oklahoma, said following Jesus has never been easy, but it is the main task God asks from His followers. "Even to the disciples following Jesus always required an enormous amount of faith," Lankford said Monday (Feb. 26) at the Lynchburg, Va. campus. "He didn't give them an occupation and He didn't give them a location, He just said to follow Him."
