For today's devotional, again we will use the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which will also be a big part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers this summer. First, read the passage and then discuss the four questions below. Conclude by reading the reflection and ponder the quote presented.
Reading: Romans 1: 16-17
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, or challenges me in this text? (or for younger kids, which part of the story doesn’t make sense to me?)
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text? (or for younger kids, what is my favorite part of the story?)
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me? (or for younger kids, what does this story remind me of?)
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text? (or for younger kids, what is God or Jesus doing in this story?)
There are many stories about people who did not believe in Jesus Christ but came to believe in Him after reading the Bible. Paul tells us that he has total confidence in the gospel because it has the power to save. God uses the gospel to put people right with God. Share that good news today! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Think of ways that you can share the good news with another person in the near future. Do it!
