The sun was beginning its’ descent, as two people walked down a rugged path, on a journey. Registration opens soon
Their eyes were fixed on the ground beneath them.
Their conversation, filled with constant sighs and pauses.
The air was thick with discouragement and uncertainty.
The events of the days preceding, constantly looping in their thoughts and conversations.
All their faith, all their trust, all their hope and been nailed to a cross, and wrapped in a tomb.
What next? What happens now?
As they continued their journey, a Man joins them, walking alongside. Beginning with Moses, and expounding upon the Scriptures, He reminded them of the Promise, He reminded them of the prophecies of the returning triumphant King.
He gave them hope.
Yet they still did not know who this Man was. Filled only with the knowledge He had provided to them, their journey reached a crossroads;
Would their journey end there?
They were at a Crossroads.
And yet they still did know who they were with.
But the journey of these two men did not end there; for instead of continuing their separate journeys, they urged this Man to remain and continue the journey with them.
And in doing so, Jesus was revealed. The revelation of Jesus meant their hope was no longer nailed to a cross, their hope was no longer wrapped in a tomb, their hope was resurrected. They had walked with the Truth, the Life, the Way. They had walked with Jesus.
Our journey does not, cannot end when we simply have knowledge; we must urge Jesus, beg Him to remain, urge Him to stay and journey with us, so that He can be revealed to us, personally.
At AYC 2024, we will gather together and prayerfully urge and insist that Jesus continues the journey with us. Over the course of the weekend, the messages, the conversations, the prayer time will be centered seeking a profound and insistent desire for Jesus to dwell with us, to journey with us, and be revealed with us.
We want a heart burning experience.
Jesus must be revealed to us personally, before we are able to go out and finish the work. Our relationship with Him is the most important thing there ever is.
It is our passion, our prayer, that at AYC 2024, you will insist and take Jesus with you on the journey. No matter what crossroads you face, no matter where they may be; urge, press, desire, Him to be there with you.
