Come and See What God Has Done
What an incredible experience. On January 2nd, 2016 40,000 young adults from across the world came together for one purpose, to lift up the name of Jesus. There were three arenas that were holding this conference at the same time. Phillips Arena in Atlanta, GA was sold out for this event. So they expanded to Infinite Energy Arena in Duluth, GA. and also Toyota Center in Houston, TX.
40,000 in attendance in three different arenas for the same conference.
What can we say about this?
Is this an accident? Is this a coincidence? Is this just the result from a whole lot of planning and human efforts? The main cause for all of this is GOD, our Creator and Father in heaven.
Think about this- as young adults we're bombarded by the lies of culture and society. We're told so many things between our careers, money, how we look, success, performance, exc. Our world tries to squeeze Jesus and the truth the bible holds out of our culture.
But what people don't see is a generation rising that refuse to believe the lies of our socitey. We refuse to believe what the world tells us we should believe. There is a generation rising that are choosing to love Jesus with their heart, soul, and mind. And choosing to love people, with their heart, soul, and mind.
We are a force to be reckoned with.
We are a voice rising from the earth. From across the globe, young people are choosing to stand for what truly matters in this life.
Don't believe me? Well, look! Open your eyes. Come and see what God has done, and what He will continue to do.
I am so thankful God has given me the opportunity to experience this past weekend. The energy and sound of thousands of people lifting up the name of Jesus is a powerful and life changing. If anything, it only encourages me to walk with Jesus even stronger than ever before. I am thankful that living for Jesus isn't just a stage people go through, but it's rather a whole life transformation. Look at all the people Jesus has changed. And this is just a few thousand of us. He is doing this very same thing in millions of lives across the globe.
"Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand."
