A universal piece of the human experience is to long for more. This longing seems built-in; it’s part of what it means to be alive. But where does the longing come from? And what can truly satisfy us?
Perhaps now more than ever, students have the world at their fingertips. They have access to more information, more entertainment, more of the world than ever before. And yet, it doesn’t seem to fill the void. In the midst of that longing, they face increased pressure to perform, while social media makes it nearly impossible to avoid comparison. Add all of it up and the weight of expectations can be crushing.
The good news is that Jesus says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” It is in Christ alone that our restless hearts find rest, and in his Church that our longing turns to belonging. At Challenge 2020, we will point students to the power of the gospel as the only thing that can fill the void. We will send them in the power of the Spirit to the mission of inviting their friends into true Rest.
