Tonight I am heading to camp. Not as a camper but as a speaker!!! I remember those “guys” from my youth. The mystery speakers that show up at night and share a sometimes boring, sometime interesting camp talk. The problem is that I know that I actually did learn stuff from these guys and so tonight I am extremely nervous as to what to say to a bunch of 8-14 year old children!
My topic is one faith (Ephesians 4) and since the topic is so broad, I am not sure whether to talk about mustard seeds, martyrs, righteousness or forgiveness. Should I demonstrate a trust fall, or blind fold one of them and have them listen as I walk them through a maze. Should I talk about the assurance of things hoped for? Should I do an exegesis of Romans! What do you think? I would love some ideas!
It’s so difficult because its so complete and big and complex, but at the same time it is so simple and straightforward:
8But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! Romans 5:7-9
