              What many would consider their worst nightmare has become a reality for Christopher Yuan. While attending dental school, he began living promiscuously as a homosexual and experimenting with illicit drugs. Within a few years, he was expelled from dental school, imprisoned for drug dealing and discovered that he was HIV positive.

              But God has turned his nightmare into an exciting and inspiring story of redemption, grace and transformation. Christopher has an understanding heart for and a desire to minister to those working through issues of sexuality and to those living with HIV/AIDS. He speaks locally and internationally to youth, on college campuses, in churches and in prisons.

              Christopher graduated from Moody Bible Institute in 2005 and Wheaton College Graduate School in 2007 with a Master of Arts in Biblical Exegesis and is currently pursuing a doctorate of ministry at Bethel Seminary. He now teaches at Moody while continuing his speaking ministry which has reached four continents around the world. Christopher has spoken at both Saddleback Church and Willow Creek Community Church in America and at many conferences including InterVarsity's Urbana and the Moody Pastors' Conference and Men's Conference. He is also featured in the award-winning documentary, "HOPE Positive: Surviving the Sentence of AIDS" and has co-authored with his mother, Out of a Far Country: A Gay Son's Journey to God, A Broken Mother's Search for Hope (forthcoming May 3, 2011 by WaterBrook Multnomah a division of Random House).

Resurrection Sunday 2009


HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN, INDEED!!!

For those who call themselves followers of the risen Lord, Jesus Christ, Resurrection Sunday or Easter must be one of the most glorious days of the year. Our whole faith centers upon this truth - that God, the Father, raised His Son on the third day defeating death and conquering sin. Unfortunately, many choose not to believe in this. I love how Paul puts it so well in 1 Cor 15:13-19.

“If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.”

What is even more important is why Christ was raised. He was not raised simply so that He would live nor was He simply raised so that we would live. But He was raised so that we could have new life and be transformed! Let us live in the reality of a God who continues to change lives and never doubt how big and how great is our God!!

AMEN!

If He can defeat the grave, no struggle we encounter is too great for His power dwelling within us to overcome!

(Romans 8:11... and Romans 8 in general!)

Blessings!
