The first full day of camp was a blast! With early morning devotional, two small group Bible studies, two all-camp worship services, two large group activity times, two ‘tracks’ of camper-selected activities, and an evening SRBC Bible study, we had a tremendous time of fun and focus on our God who “reveals His name.”
During Bible study and worship hours with CentriKid staff, our kids learned about the names of God and that there is no other name by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12). Campers talked about four specific names of God: Immanuel (our God who is present), Jehovah Rohi (our God who shepherds), Jehovah Jireh (our God who provides) and El Roi (our God who is caring and sees me).
Throughout the week, campers also hear the foundational truths of the Gospel. We are so blessed that his Word is powerful and does not return to Him void, but accomplishes His will (Isaiah 55:11). What a privilege to see lives transformed by the power of the Gospel.
During evening SRBC Bible study time we expanded on the discussion of God’s name by highlighting that God’s name is powerful and takes action - and is more than just descriptive (Deut 12:5 & 11, Exodus 23:20-21, Psalm 20:1-2). As believers, we should not carry or bear His name in a worthless manner (“take His name in vain”; Exodus 20:7). We closed the evening by reading John 17:25-26, explaining that Jesus made the Father’s name known to us, so that we can share in the same love which the Father and Son share.
….and Cut. Day Two is a wrap.
