Camp Theme: “Take Heart”
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” —John 16:33
No one wants to be afraid, to feel anxious or nervous. We believe the lies and fears that the enemy seeks to instill in our lives. We walk into our schools, turn on the news, or talk to our friends and leave feeling unsteady.
But fear does not have to be the defining characteristic of our lives. The voice of the enemy does not have to overpower the voice of our Victor, Jesus. Jesus has erased the need for all fear and blocks out the sometimes overwhelming voice of the enemy.
At Student Life Camp 2020, students will learn that while the opponent is great, our God is greater. He was and is a God of kept promises, who has good plans for us. He is our stronghold in the midst of weakness, taking our hands in the face of uncertainty and pushing us toward courage, pushing us to take heart.
- Day 1 –Past Promises, Future Confidence
Our God is good, and He keeps His promises to us. Because God has kept His promises in the past, we can have confidence in His plans for us.
- Day 2 – Stronghold in Weakness
The unknown is terrifying, especially when you don’t feel equipped to handle it. Our insecurities can bring inescapable feelings of anxiety and fear. But take comfort and feel empowered in knowing that God uses people’s weaknesses and equips them for His kingdom’s work in the midst of fear.
- Day 3 – Love and Suffering
God promises to be with us. In fact, God sent His Son to die on the cross so that we could be saved and have a restored relationship with Him. But that doesn’t mean we will live a perfect life. On the contrary, following Jesus requires suffering. As we grow in our love of Jesus, we grow in the realization that we are sinful – and that is painful. However, this suffering is not at the hands of a malicious God, but rather, a loving God. A God who loves us so much that He wants to see us look more like His perfect Son and become a part of His eternal plan for us.
- Day 4 – Great Opponent/Greater God
Sometimes the opponent of sin feels like more than we can handle. In those moments, we can take heart and see that God is greater than any opponent of sin or shame because He has already conquered them all. The battle has been won. Our God is greater.
