Trust in Jesus

Posted by Jennifer Holz on

Greetings First Pres from Camp Elim! This week we have 110 children and youth participating in camp. They are learning about Jesus, spending time in the Scripture together and having the time of their lives. As I write this note to you all today, they are in cabin discussions with their counselors talking about sin and how Jesus is the only one who can free us from our sin. Would you take a moment today and throughout this week to pray that each camper would encounter Jesus in powerful ways and put their trust more deeply in Him?

This Sunday we continue our sermon series entitled Future Jesus. As we look at Revelation 5, we wrestle with the question, "Is Jesus worthy?" As I share with our camp kids about Jesus, I want them to know that not only is Jesus worthy of their lives here at Elim, but He is worthy to hold their lives for the entirety of their existence. In fact Jesus is worthy to hold the brokenness of our whole world in His hands that he might heal our sin and bring us life eternal.

As we fix our eyes on Jesus, our hope rises. My prayer for our church this week is that we would know Jesus each day and trust Him with everything.
