Tuesday Chapels {Senior Teen Camp 2013}

We're having a great week with Pastor Adam Davidson as our speaker, and worship led by Wellspring.  Here are some notes taken by Emily on Tuesday's chapels.  Be sure to ask a senior teen camper you know about what they learned!

Exodus 20:3-17
The 10 commandments

Isaiah 55:8-9

We can't do everything God asks us to do on our own

What do you do with the 10 commandments?

Phillipians 3:7-10 (rubbish, garbage... Skubala in Greek)

Don't just follow the law but follow Christ!

You are dead without Christ! You'll never live up to his perfect expectations. What are we gonna do about it?

"Jesus paid it all
All to Him I owe
Sun had left a crimson stain
He washed it white as snow"

Genesis 1:1-27
God doesn't need us to be complete...
He created us out of abundance and grace
The one that shaped the dirt has his finger prints all over us
We are created in the image of God
We were created with free will

Genesis 3: (Appearance of the snake)
Free will put was to test and sin was chosen
Temptation: offering you something that can (will) never be delivered
Physical death happened in Genesis 3 as well as a death of the present relationship with god

"As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath."
Ephesians 2:1-3

It is by grace we have been saved
God immediately begins to rescue us from our brokenness as soon as it happened

God created satan
There is never a moment when satan is greater than God
Why hasn't Jesus stopped satan yet?... It's not time

"For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
Ephesians 2:10

Everyone is normal until you get to know them
TV has to put attractive people in their shows because those are the only people we identify with.... We are conditioned to find beauty in the external

If you know Jesus you cannot judge people from the outside
Image of Christ: love, grace, acceptance, value
How do you know you're okay?
God created us - Can't take from earth our cues on how you're supposed to look

God loves you exactly how you are
Be comfortable in your own skin!
