It’s not a given that college students today will know other students on their campus. It is far too easy not to know anyone. The end result? The college campus can be a lonely place. It can also be a great opportunity to meet new students who could use a friend. Students who are open to the gospel.
Jesus said to his disciples in John 4, "Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest." (ESV) How will our students ever know the harvest field they walk into every day if they don't lift their eyes? Sometimes it takes a gentle reminder from a leader for them to be intentional in relating to others around them. Would you remind them this week to take out their earbuds, look up from their phones, and see that the fields are white for harvest?
