Day One at Camp

If it has ever passed your mind about the dire condition of the world and you find yourself a bit terrified about the next generation that will be in charge, you might want to visit a camp like Sonlight Christian Camp. In one day I find that my hope for the future has brightened.

I am meeting Christian young men and women who have a genuine heart for Jesus. Admittedly there are those who can talk the Christian language but that's pretty much where it begins and ends. However, amongst them are individuals who know the God who created them, the Jesus who loves them and the Holy Spirit who guides them. It's not to say that they don't have questions, but they seem to be content in the fact that they may not know everything, now. Their confidence is in the truth that God knows and that is enough. They are much like the father who cries out to Jesus, "I believe! Help me in my unbelief."

So, if you are at all like me and feeling some anxiousness about the future particularly as it pertains to our youth, take heart. There are young people out there who are being guided and moved by the Holy Spirit to lead others of their generation to the truths of Jesus Christ. I'm meeting a few of them this week and am reminded of Jesus' words to the disciples-- everything else might fail but My Word will never fail. Thanks be to God!
