"I WANT TO KNOW MORE."
- ALMOST EVERYONE
New York City. Madison Square Park. An exceptionally perfect sunny afternoon. I found myself talking to three young millennials about God, the Bible, Jesus, and the story Jesus followers call “the gospel.” As they learned how this message was central to every part of life you could see their excitement build and their curiosity intensify. One young man looked at me and said, “Man, you are blowing my mind…I want to know more.”
This is my “Why.” The world is hurting, broken, confused, and without hope. And in every human is the desire to find meaning and purpose. When we understand that we are uniquely designed creations of God who have been redeemed from our broken choices and are offered status as a child of God through Jesus…well that changes everything.
I live to bring glory to my Savior by helping people know more about what really matters.
