LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) – Thousands of young adults ages 18-25 heard about the importance of missions and the local church this week during the 2021 CROSS Conference.
The conference, held Dec. 31-Jan. 2 at the Kentucky International Convention Center, discussed topics such as reaching the world with the Gospel and the importance of the local church in missions.
David Platt, lead pastor at McLean Bible Church in Vienna, Va., and former president of the International Mission Board exhorted the young adults during his final address at the conference to prioritize missions and share the Gospel in the short time we are given.
“The Bible says each of us is here for a little while,” Platt said. “Life is a vapor; it’s a mist. It’s here one second and gone the next. Life is short, so don’t waste it.
“Students, leaders, your life is a mist so make the mist count. Your death is coming … and others’ deaths are coming. The people we’re talking about reaching are dying.”
