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: John 1: 14-18
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?)
A lot of our faith is based on incomprehensible truths. Isn't it something to think that God's Word became flesh through Jesus Christ? Isn't it something what John said when he remarked, "He comes after me, but He is greater than I am because He existed before I was born?" Through God's grace we have been blessed. God's love is unconditional; it has no strings attached. And once we are His chosen people, we will remain God's people forever. What was in the beginning is now and ever shall be! Praise be to God! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Share with someone today some of the things you think are incomprehensive truths.
