BaseCamp – Day Two

We finished our second day of BaseCamp yesterday, starting day three today. I joke on Facebook yesterday I now see that the reason I jog and have lost weight was so that I would have the stamina to lead a yard crew at BaseCamp, and that’s not far from the truth!

I was a good day, with a lot of hard work to do.  One of the things that I took away from yesterday was the joy of good, Christian friends and conversations.  As I talked with some of the other leaders last night before dinner, during dinner, and then after dinner, it was just so great to talk to people that have the same heart as your own.

It’s so great to have conversations that encourage us in our faith. That build us up, and allow others to be built up. To be reminded of just how awesome God is.

To be reminded of what a great thing we have in Jesus Christ.

It reminded me of one of my favorite verses in the Bible, from the short book of Philemon, where it is written in verse 6

I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.

When we share our faith through our actions, through our words, through all that we are, something happens. We are reminded everything we have in Christ.

So, when we go out today and live the Christian life, it’s not just so that others can see the goodness of our God, it’s not just so that we can be the hands and feet of Jesus, in some way it’s a reminded of all the good things we have in Jesus Christ.

Remember all you have in Him!  Live for Him, love for Him, be His hands and feet.  Pray for all the kids working this week at BaseCamp.  And be reminded of all you have in Christ Jesus.
