He is Able

Ephesians 3:20-21
20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

In just a few minutes I will preach on this text.  I cannot wait.  The God who is able has been teaching me all week from this passage in many ways.  I trust that He is able to take His Word and to more than I can ask or imagine.  I am asking you to apply this text with me this week as we take over 150 young people and army of adults to summer camp.  The theme this year is Real Courage.

I was burdened over a year ago that young people (and adults for that matter) are going to have realize and practice the gift of courage in this modern world if in fact they are going to live for Christ.  As a result, I have prepared a series of sermons that will deal with courage that I will share with them this week.  Others have prepared small group lessons, quiet times, and other material to share with them.  Will you join with us by praying for what will take place while we are at camp?

1.  Pray for the eyes of our hearts to be open so that we may know the hope that He has called us.  Ask God to save those who are with us that are not yet believers

2.  Pray for us to know the love of Christ in a deep and lasting way that will compel us to give all for His sake and glory.

3.  Pray that will we lay aside any sin and weight that is hindering us and run the race He has before us with courage.

4.  Pray that lifelong resolves will be made to follow Christ wherever to whatever…no matter the cost!

Check back to the blog all week for updates, sermon posts, prayer reminders, and a little fun.
