GOD IS: I AM
When Moses asked God whom he should say was sending him to free the Israelites, God replied, “Tell them I AM has sent you.” Had that conversation taken place today, God would have dropped the microphone or added, “Boom!” What God was saying to Moses then and is saying to our world today is, “I am the bottom line. I am the creator and sustainer of all that is. If you are looking for life, I AM the way to that life.”
Similar to every other generation before them, today’s children and youth are seeking answers as to who they are, what is there place in this world, and are they of any worth. But unlike any generation before them, this generation is overwhelmed with a myriad of voices coming from hundreds of sources whispering a thousand different things. This summer we want to lift high THE one voice that is the foundation for who we are supposed to be, for who we can be, Jesus Christ.
Jesus said, “I AM the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). Over the course of each week, not only will our summer campers make new friends, laugh until their sides hurt, and grow as they overcome challenges and learn new skills, every day they will delve into many of the “God is” declarations of the Bible so that they can genuinely become who God intended them to be.
