Proverbs 3:5-6; Galatians 2:15-21; Ephesians 2:8-10 (day five)
The next 2 weeks our teenagers will be at youth camp. The theme is Pursue (from 2 Timothy 2:22). Timothy is challenged to pursue: righteousness, faith, love and peace. These are such pivotal moments for teenagers to test, grow, and solidify their faith. They are transitioning to “faith ownership” as they become young men and women (that’s what we want for them). Will you pray these next 2 weeks for them and their “faith”? Will you pray for The Holy Spirit to speak the truth and wisdom of the Gospel into their hearts and minds through Scripture, Youth Ministry Staff, and Camp Counselors?
That process should never stop, even for adults. From our camp curriculum: “It is normal for teenagers to doubt and question what they believe. Searching for who and what we believe helps answer tough questions. There is a difference between doubt and unbelief. Doubt comes from a struggling mind while unbelief comes from a stubborn will that refuses to surrender to God.”
