Camp Theme - Once Upon a Story

       Each year, Camp Siloam finds a scripture that emphasizes one of three themes 1) Your Identity in Jesus 2) God has made you for a purpose in his Kingdom 3) God’s mission for the world.  Camp Siloam believes that if a young person understands these three things, then they can be a person of eternal, global impact.  This year is a year in which we talk about Jesus and what he says about those who believe in him.

       This year's theme is a storybook theme; a classic tale about a storybook character who takes a journey through a forest.  Woven into this story is a powerful message about how intimately God knows you.  Camp Siloam staff can't wait for you to discover how we use the art of story to teach that Jesus describes those who believe in Him as "one with the Father" in John 17.

       John 17 is known as Jesus’ “High Priestly Prayer.” It is an amazing chapter of the Bible because here one can read Jesus praying for us; the people who live in 2019!  In John 17:21 Jesus asks the Father, “May they all be one as you, Father, are in me and I am in you.  May they be in us, so that the world may know you have sent me.”  (CSB) The idea of being “one with the Father as Jesus was one” is complicated, but think about all you have access to if you have the same kind of relationship with the Father that Jesus did.  Just to give you a hint, he tells the disciples, “Everything the Father has is mine.  This is why I told you that he takes from what is mine and will declare it to you.” John 16:15 (CSB)

       This seems to indicate that everything Jesus had access to in God’s kingdom is available to us because his Holy Spirit dwells in us.  Are you living like a prince or princess of the King or are you living like an orphan?  John 14-17 might be the greatest statement of intimacy and identity in all of scripture.  We can’t wait to share it with you this summer.
