Read Romans 5:2-5
As you know, through preparation for Impact, worship during Impact, and even the shirt you brought home from Impact, our theme for this year is “Robes of Hope.” It’s easy to focus on a theme while you are at camp, but now that you’re home, not everyone around you knows what you did or why you did it. If there’s one thing you need to be able to do, it’s to tell people WHY we love others.
When you are home, a lot of people will ask you how camp was. Tell them about more than the nails you drove, the saw you got to use, and the fun you had. Tell them about how you saw God at work – about how you were the hands and feet of Christ. And if they ask you why you did it, tell them that you were sharing hope with others.
Tell them about the hope you have as well.
We talk a lot about why you should show love to others. But in your words, and in your life, why do you do it?
Loving God. Thank You for loving me. Thank You for loving us all. Help me to show love to others because You first showed love to me.
