The morning starts like most mornings here at kamp, the kitichies and maintenance up early getting ready for the day.
The second K-life talk was done by one of our leadership guys, Scott Caldwell. He began his talk by showing pictures of galaxies and how God spoke creation into being. How cool is that?! Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” Creation is such an amazing thing to learn about. When God created men they dwelled with God in the Garden of Eden. In the garden God gave them one rule: not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:16). They had complete freedom in the garden, other than to follow God's one rule. For example, on the night of game 7 of the NBA Finals there was also a Globe Trotters game. Globe Trotters is a game of entertainment basketball where there are absolutely no rules. He showed that everyone cared more about the NBA final game and appreciated the rules the game has because it makes for fair competition. God was not holding out on them, when He said not to eat from that tree, He knew that was best for them. That is where temptation comes in. The Devil began to have Adam and Eve question God's motives on that one rule. Adam and Eve ended up eating from the tree and sin entered the earth. What is sin? Sin is running away from God and running toward the world thinking it will give freedom. Scott showed an illustration of a cup of clean water; it was pure. He then put dirt into the cup showing that that water was now unclean. The dirt was representing sin, which showed that sin made the water dirty and impure to drink. We are all sinners and on our own, we could not have a relationship with God after sin entered the world. The good news is even though we sin, God chose to send His son, Jesus, to die on the cross and rise again in order to take our sin. Romans 10:9 says, “if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” We are thankful to be able to teach our Kampers about the Bible and show them the hope that they can have in the Lord.
