The first week in August, we attended a Lifeway conference in Glorieta, N.M., with 1,400 other collegiate ministers. It was a valuable week. As a team, we left greatly inspired to pray big prayers and expect big things from our very, very big God.
Do these 20,000 Washington State University students know how much Jesus loves them? I wonder if God could use me to embody the love of his Son and plant seeds of hope in their lives.
God has mandated that I live as a missionary to my generation. Washington is one of the top two unchurched states in our nation. I need to ask God to give me Christ’s eyes and to embolden me, filling me with compassion so I can unreservedly reach out to those far from him.
God already has begun to introduce me to girls who realize they need Him. Countless coffee dates are anticipated!
God has given me infinite reasons to trust and praise his name. Pray I remain rooted in his sufficiency, as the days ahead cannot be about me. Fill your affections with the cross of Christ, and you will not be able to keep God’s steadfast love to yourself. We are loved with an eternal love, and we must give this love away.
