Tuesday, June 24
We have been blessed with beautiful weather and wonderful fellowship. The team has really enjoyed working with the Church of the Cove and getting to know one another better. We have also been reminded of the admonition to be ready “in season and out of season.” The guest speaker for Monday evening could not make it so I (Bro Kevin) had the opportunity and privilege to speak to the children. The night before, Mr. Mike had twisted metal rods, ripped phone books in half and bent horseshoes with his bare hands. So I tried, and failed, to crush a cinder block with my bare hands. I reminded the kids that there are just some things that we simply cannot do, like get to heaven on our own strength; and there are some things only God can do, like make a way for us to be with him in heaven. Romans 5:8 tells us that “when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.” Jesus crushed the power of sin and was strong enough to take us heaven. What a beautiful truth.
