And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” John 6:35
Superstar DJ Avicii rose to fame as a teenager but never found happiness. He told Rolling Stone he stopped touring because, “I needed to figure out my life. The whole thing was about success for the sake of success. I wasn’t getting any happiness anymore.” He eventually took his own life at age 28.
Mental illness and depression are dominating youth culture, and the only lasting answer is the Gospel of Christ. It’s hard to reach a superstar with the Gospel, but it’s not so hard to reach a child who may one day rise to prominence. It’s not hard to invite a middle schooler to church or a high schooler to a youth event. It’s not hard to say “God bless you” to a store clerk.
Let’s work for the Master from dawn till the setting sun, doing our part to shine a light into dark hearts and sad souls. Let’s preach the Word with readiness and true faithfulness, helping people figure out their lives by showing them the wonder of the life of our Jesus.
Evangelism is not imposing anything on anyone; it is simply sharing the truth. Mark Dever
