A LITTLE over-due...

I promise the lack posts is not due to the lack of being fed from the word. The Lord has given me blessing after blessing.
I've just been plain ol' busy. Granted, busy with very worth-while things, but busy none the less.

I just got back from my last year at teen camp, so I'm going to post a few of the messages that were such a blessing. These are only a select few, but all the sermons were fantastic!

Oh, and the theme this year was CROSS-training.

Morning chapel- Bro Dunlap

What is the cross? It's a statement. The end of something. It's devotion. It's healing.
To take up your cross takes training/practice.
(Cross)(training) : Fully useful, to be perfected.

1 Corinthians 9:24 
 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
To excercise in the Christian life- Bible reading and prayer

Acts 24:16 
 And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.
2 Timothy 2:3 
Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
Excercise takes some pain, but you need to get tough for God!

Hebrews 12:1 
 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Training requires patience, over time, on a daily basis. You have to die to the old man DAILY.

Galatians 5:7 
Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
Weight is what hinders you. Weight could be peer pressure,  earthly possessions, hobbies, etc.

1 Corinthians 9:22-27 
To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
 And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
Self control, dicipline, etc.

1 Corinthians 10:31
  Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
Speaks for itself. Are you a fanatic about God's Word?

2 Timothy 2:15 
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
This takes practice!

1 Timothy 4:8-11 
For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. 
 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
 These things command and teach.

1 Timothy 4:12 
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
Dont let anyone have a reason to despise your youth! Be an example rarely seen today.

I'll do more eventually, hopefully soon! Next week I go to a second senior camp. I can't wait to see what the Lord will do there!
