Soul Cravings

You were made to GROW, to dream, to achieve. Your soul is letting you know you come from God and your life is intended to be God-sized and God-inspired.
- Erwin McManus, Soul Cravings

On January 27th Campus for Christ hosted author Erwin McManus to talk to hundreds of students about Soul Cravings—or the idea that our souls crave three basic things that can only really be found in God: intimacy, destiny and meaning. From the turnout of so many students (and people from the community) it seemed as if his words were hitting home for many people.
A student in our ministry, Nick shares what happened when he followed up with a typical Guelph student:

"After being raised going to church, he drifted as he got older and developed his life without a focus on God. However, he claims he is comfortable with his current position.
His question essentially is why would someone content with their life need to accept Jesus? What do you tell the people who claim to be happy and successful but don’t know Jesus?"

Please pray for the many students who don’t know Jesus. Pray that they would realize there is a God who loves and wants to know them. Pray that we would connect with students who are searching for more in life; those who want to know Jesus.
