Hello there PC Ranch!
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 has been such a helpful reminder this summer.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Whether at camp or in daily life, we can all agree that we become weary. Work, the busyness of life, or even mundane tasks can exhaust us. In the midst of exhaustion, and even when we return back to daily life away from camp, this verse is a stronghold. Our daily struggles do not even compare to the glory that awaits.
Whenever we hear this verse, we are reminded, despite our current situation, that we should be glorifying the Lord. Exhaustion at camp is beyond worth it because sixth and seventh grade campers have the opportunity to hear the gospel. Jesus sacrificed for us out of love. We are also called to be like Christ, and one way we do that here at camp is by giving our all to every camper that steps foot on the Ranch. We are ultimately preparing for the unseen and for a glory that is beyond worth it.
As we finish out this week, and even this year, we challenge you to remember the ultimate goal of our momentary troubles. Our troubles that we endure concerning Christ are worth the ending result. The eternal glory of Christ is so worth it.
Until next time,
