To challenge them to grow.
We also desire to have a love that isn’t relevant, but revolutionary. Revolutionary means that we are “introducing radical change.” That means we want our love to challenge people to come to know personally a growth that changes them in a radical way. The idea being that no longer do people associate love as this feeling that can fade out, but as this power from Christ that lives inside us and changes everything about the way that we see His people.
So why do we do what we do? Here the three simple answers:
a. We love them. We are loved by Christ, so we are called to love others. (That’s it)
b. We’re called to it. Christ called us to serve others and take the Good News to them. This is the group we’re called to serve & reach.
c. We see a need. A large portion of college / career adults are searching for meaning and when they don’t find it, they turn to alcohol, sex, drugs, some of them even give up altogether, ending their lives too soon, or livingin a meaningless existence. They are hurting so much; hurting each other and they are literally DYING for what we have! We CANNOT and will NOT keep Christ to ourselves!
