I am on my way to Bair Lake Bible Camp in Jones, Michigan, where I will be speaking to a group of students this weekend. Many of these are the same students I got to know last year on this same winter retreat. They’re from Crosspointe Christian Church and Hope Community Baptist Church near Detroit. Please pray that I can be clear and that the Holy Spirit can bring understanding. Our focus for the weekend is love. We will seek to reflect upon these four questions:
- What does the world’s love look like?
- How much did Jesus love His disciples?
- How do we love each other when it’s hard?
- Will not-yet-believers be attracted to us because of our love?
Whenever I speak for events like this, I ask the leaders to tell me the thing(s) that they feel need some extra attention. Instead of speaking some random, pre-packaged sermons, we are able to talk about things that have already been identified as areas of need. Thanks for praying!
