Our mission is to empower tomorrow’s leaders today. One way we do that is by offering various trips to our team members to go and grow together. This year 6 team members attended Passion 2018, a worship conference for 18-25 year olds. Passion combines incredible worship leaders with great speakers to encourage young adults to take a stand for their faith.
My experience at Passion was life changing. I had so many eye-opening moments and where I felt as though Christ was speaking directly to me and was telling me exactly what I needed to hear. Levi Lusko was one of the conference speakers and he talked to us about “Kicking the Bucket List.” His point was that the more we focus and look forward to the next world (heaven) the less we will need or want in the old one. He was saying that we shouldn’t follow our own dreams, we should follow Jesus and He will fulfill us more than any of our dreams ever could. Levi had three points he focused on:
- The less you need from this world, the more you can do for it.
- The less you need from this world, the more you can withstand from it.
- The less you need from this world, the more you can enjoy it.
Levi’s whole lesson was amazing and really made me think about how as humans we can get so caught up in wanting to live our lives to the fullest. In reality when we accept Christ as our savior He has so much more in store for us in heaven. Now I’m not saying don’t enjoy your lives here, God put us all on this earth for a reason and we have to live out His plan for our lives, but don’t get so caught up in the here and now that we lose sight of what He has waiting for us in heaven with Him.
