You are Invited!

Picture beautiful lake Michigan, a couple hundred 4th-6th grade students, college age counselors and my husband and I. This week we are the chaplains for a summer camp at Camp Geneva in Holland Michigan.

There has been the typical camp skits, games, songs slushies, smores and chocolate malts. In the midst of all of this is one central truth that is holding everything together. Jesus!  He is the reason that this camp exists, so that others may come to know His love, grace and forgiveness.

Yesterday was an exciting day! Both Kevin (my husband) and I had time scheduled to meet with camp counselors. They have come this summer to tell children about the great love of Jesus! I love spending time with College students who are in love with Jesus, they so encourage me in my own faith.

Last night we had the blessing of sharing about the invitation that Christ offers us. As we taught about the little tax collector Zaccheaus, the students were given this challenge.
We can choose to stay up in a tree like Zaccheaus, or come down, accept his invitation and enter into a life giving relationship with Jesus Christ.

Jesus offers us many invitations 

  • Come to me when you are tired and burdened-I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
  • Come and follow me-I will make you fishers of men. Matthew 3
  • Believe in Me and you will not perish, I will give you eternal life. John 3:16
  • Confess your sins and I will forgive your sins and cleanse you of all unrighteousness. I John 1:9
          • Confess with your mouth that I am Lord and believe in your heart that God raised me from the dead, then I will save you. Romans 10:9-10

Watching children accept the invitation and begin a relationship with Jesus is so exciting, but this invitation is not just for children!  

God wants a relationship with every person.  

Where are you today? Up in a tree like Zaccheaus, watching from afar?  Come down and meet Jesus today!

Father, thank you for calling each one of us by name. You know all about us, ugly truth and all, yet you tell us that you will forgive us and love us!  I put my trust in you, I accept your invitation.  Jann
