Into All The World

One of the Bible teachers here at the Camp this summer asked the question, “Why are we so reluctant to do what God is asking us to do?”

Answers began coming. One answer was that sometimes we don’t know what mission God may be sending us on, so we sit around and wait for Him to speak. Or we might be afraid to answer the call. Then, the final comment, spoken strongly, without hesitation, “The first two letters of God’s name is GO. We don’t need to ask Him what our mission is. He’s already given it to us. We are to go into all the world and preach the gospel.”

As I thought about that comment, I realized the Lord is asking Warm Beach Camp to “go into all the world” too. We began this summer, taking Day Camp to Day Creek Chapel in Sedro Woolley. What a wonderfully fun camp! Warm Beach showed up with tents and counselors, games and lessons, ready for the weekend. There were 23 Hispanic children, learning about Jesus and having fun doing it. Children that otherwise wouldn’t have had the chance to hear about Jesus in a camp setting.

We are not all called to “go” to the farthest corners of the world, but God has asked each of us to go into our own world and take His love with us. Jesus’ mission is to redeem and restore a lost world to Himself and He asks each of us to fit into that mission, too.

Warm Beach Camp’s mission dovetails into Christ’s: “We exist to provide environments, experiences, and resources which draw people of all ages to God through the ministry of Christian Camping.”

Let us all remember our mission is the same as Jesus’ – we are to go.

While there are a slowly growing number of environments facilitating this type of interaction, there is a continued need for these individuals ...
