The Reality of God’s Enduring Love

We are living in the reality of God’s enduring love. That is the truth. God’s love is greater than the epic challenges of the world and the individual moments on any given day. New beginnings and necessary endings are part of what we navigate in life every day. We will celebrate a newborn baby, intercede for a friend with a terminal disease, and grieve when nations go to unjust war.   

 God’s enduring love never fails.   

 His compassion reaches beyond the harshest of moments. His love is stronger than the fiercest attack. There is nothing that can stand up to the strength and power of this kind of love. This love sees the potential in a situation that is broken. This love offers forgiveness and new beginnings. Even wars and pandemics cannot contain the amazing depth of God’s enduring love. 

 As Jesus’ followers, God gifts us with His love to bring to the world every day. Our identities are not defined by the brokenness around us or consumed by the trauma of today. We get to show up in this world with God’s enduring love. We experience it, share it, and give it away freely to anyone who will receive it.   

 With God’s help, Warm Beach Camp Ministries seeks to show up in this world every day in everything we do to live and share God’s enduring love through the reach of Black Diamond Camp, Rainier Camp & Retreat Center, and Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center.   

 Together, let’s experience and share God’s enduring love with the world.

Will you take a few minutes to reflect with me on what God has to say about different types of rest? Scripture • For the weary person carrying heavy burdens ...

Just a Hint of Heaven

In Mark 6:30, Jesus called His disciples to “come away and rest by yourselves.” It was an invitation to separate themselves from the work of the Kingdom, from the press of the crowds, and from daily cares. And best of all, they got to just be with Jesus. That’s what coming to Warm Beach Camp has felt like for me personally. It’s been an invitation to come away and spend time with Jesus. I have been attending family camps at ...

Words from the Heart

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:10 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/rom.10.10.NLT The writer of the book of Romans is sharing words from his heart. He wants everyone to understand the way to be made right with God. He longs for everyone to be saved. Listen to what is being said: Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and ...
