Last night at Sports Camp at Graystone Church, 94 kids prayed to receive Jesus Christ into their lives. PRAISE GOD! Thank you everyone who has invested in Sports Camp through praying, giving, serving and sharing the love of Jesus with these kids.
Many of the kids who made commitments are the children of Graystone members. So, we know these kids will be followed up by their parents. They are already plugged into church and children’s ministry, so they will have every opportunity in the world to take root and grow spiritually (Colossians 2:6-7).
Many of the other kids who made decisions come from unchurched families. Our hope and prayer is that many of these families will start coming to church, and their kids can grow up in the faith. We invited as many of these parents to church as we possibly could. Let’s pray for God to draw them to Himself (John 6:44).
Of the 94 kids who made commitments to follow Jesus Christ, it is really hard to know for sure how many of them truly understand the gospel. A pastor or trained volunteer leader met with each of them one on one, but it’s still really hard to determine “if they are ready”. Many more kids were encouraged to wait and learn more about Jesus. Only God knows what’s truly taking place in a person’s heart. We simply have to be faithful to plant and water the seeds of the gospel. God will cause the growth (1 Corinthians 3:6-7).
I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that dozens of kids’ lives were changed last night for all eternity. And many more took steps in their spiritual journey toward a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This is what it’s all about and the reason we do what we do.
WOW! God is moving in a powerful way. And we get to be a part of it.
Look at the nations and watch– and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe even if you were told.” Habakkuk 1:5
