Rejoice

Posted on Jun 30, 2020 in Camp Blog, Searchable

“Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice” (Philippians 4:4). I bet many of you sang that line when you read it from the famous Hymn. What does it mean to rejoice always in the Lord? To me, when I think of the word rejoice I usually think of being extremely happy to the point of excitement, when something good is going on. In Greek, the word translated to rejoice is χαίρω, charió, (Khah’-ee-ro) which literally means to be “favorably disposed to God’s grace” (HELPS Word-studies). It is very similar to the words translated to “grace” and “joy.” This puts a whole...

Faithfulness

Posted on Jun 22, 2020 in Camp Blog, Searchable

The day I am writing this post (June 22) was supposed to be the day that we would be picking up the counselors who were flying in from other countries and start our training.  Instead, I am alone on campus doing some cleaning and weeding. This is not what I expected to happen this summer at all, but I am sure we are all in the same boat due to COVID-19.  Even in times of uncertainty, I am reminded of God’s faithfulness through any situation. The Israelites were promised the land of Canaan and God remained faithful to that promise, even though it took a long time for it...

Love

As humans one of the hardest things to do is love other people.  It may be easy to love someone who is like us or who is close to us, like a family member.   It becomes much harder to love someone who is not like us or a person we disagree with or hate. Jesus made many countercultural statements we should be treating other people. Matthew 5:43-44 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” Matthew 22: 36-40 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the...

Discernment

Posted on Jun 8, 2020 in Camp Blog, Searchable

There are lots thing out there vying for your attention; family, friends, media, internet. They all want you to act and think a certain way, but what is the “right way” to act? We have all heard the phrase WWJD, what would Jesus do, but with all these outside influences how can we figure that out? I like Calhoun’s answer to this question “Biblical discernment involves more than good judgment, open doors, and decision-making skills. Right discernment arises out of a relationship with God in prayer. It is founded on the reality of the Holy Spirit’s presence within us” (Spiritual...
