CK2 has officially made it to Georgetown College!
Training week was such an incredible time of learning, hard work, quality time with eternal friends, and preparing to share the Gospel with hundreds of kids. I learned so much. I am continually blown away by my team. They are funny, witty, sweet, helpful, courteous, and eagerly ready to share Christ. I’m so proud of their willingness to work hard and root everything they do in God’s truth.
I jokingly made this comment to some of my camp friends, but when you are greeted into camp or training week by CentriKid staffers, I feel like that’s a little glimpse of Heaven. I can just imagine being greeted and embraced with overwhelming joy by people I love dearly. Whether they are jumping around like crazy blowing whistles or not, that’s up to the Lord.
Pool noodles, spot cheers, face paint, water guns, dome cones, colorful light shows, Paca the Pinata, and a little game called OMC will each play a part this summer in helping to connect with kids, build relationships with them, and share the Gospel though the context of those relationships. Those things don’t exactly sound like things one may use to lead kids to Christ…
…but I can’t help but think of 1 Corinthians 1:26-31:
Brothers, consider your calling: Not many are wise from a human perspective, not many powerful, not many of noble birth. Instead, God has chosen what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen what is weak in the world to shame the strong. God has chosen what is insignificant and despised in the world–what is viewed as nothing–to bring to nothing what is viewed as something, so that no one can boast in His presence. But it is from Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became God-given wisdom for us–our righteousness, sanctification, and redemption, in order that, as it is written: The one who boasts must boast in the Lord.
Followers of Christ who love Him and want to serve Him. Some of the greatest friends I’ve ever known.
It’s pretty amazing that Heaven is going to far surpass the emotions I’ve felt in the past week.
