In a culture that is screaming for your attention ... that is telling you that everything is about YOU ... your happiness, enjoyment, pleasure and success ... the true call to Christian young people (saved by the mercy of God through the cross of Christ) is a call to die. To lay down our lives for the sake of the gospel. To see everything good in this life as a gift of God's grace, and then go to the ends of the earth to take that "Good News" to those who have never even heard the name of Jesus!
"There are many of you who don't want your life to make a difference, you just want to be liked, have friends, a good marriage, a good job, an easy retirement ... and no hell, but you don't give a rip about whether your life means anything or not. I'm here to plead with you to make your life count for the cross, and not throw away your lives on fatal success." John Piper
