“God is thirsting for YOU. God thirsts for your thirst. He thirsts to quench your thirst.”
These are some of the powerful words Matt Maher spoke to an arena full of teens tonight as he shared his thoughts on this year’s theme, interwoven with moving outbursts of worship music. Matt explained in his talk that our very need for God’s presence is shown through our natural and physical need for water. God designed our bodies to rely on outside nourishment as a way to remind us of a much greater thirst in our lives– a thirst for something so intangible, it is not even from this world. Within that thirst is the reminder from God that he desires to be a part of our most desperate and secret wants.
