• Behold! - The Son of God

    But there is One who is greater than the mightiest storm and His name is Jesus! He comes down the hill and to the edge of the stormy lake. Not stopping there, He continues towards the disciples - walking on the water. Once He is near enough to be noticed the disciples are terrified by the sight and assume a ghost is approaching. Then comes the beautiful words of Jesus we all long to hear in our storms, “Don’t be afraid! Take courage, I am here!” read more

  • Behold! The Saviour

    If I asked you to think of a Behold! moment in the bible, I could guess that most of you would respond with the ever famous Christmas story. A dark routine night. Nothing but the cool breeze carrying wafts of wooly friends past the noses of a gathering of common shepherds. They are taking in the night sky that hasn’t changed from the night before, or the night before that, or the night before that. The stars are dazzling as they should, the moon adjusts through its predictable phases, and the familiar voices of the shepherds gently calls back any sheep beginning to wander. When the day began, we could guess, the shepherds were not expecting a behold moment. read more

  • Behold! The Rescuer

    Pharaoh had agreed to let the Israelites go but with a hardened heart, he changes his mind and sends his army out, following the scent of the salves he now what’s back at the control of his hand. When the Israelites see this, they are overcome with fear. This fear turns into faithless complaining and a cry out to their leader, Moses, “Why did you bring us out here to die? Were there not enough graves in Egypt? Why have you dealt with us this way?” Then they put the icing on the cake with, “We told you so!”. read more

  • Behold! - Part 1

    Over and over the Lord approached His people, Israel, saying “Behold!” and followed with a story of His faithfulness or a coming promise. He declared, ‘Look! Don’t miss this!’ and continued this excited urgency through the New Testament accounts and, being the same yesterday, today and forever, calls us to Behold! now in our own relationships with Him, as individuals and as the church. The Lord says to us, “seek my face” and our response needs to be an echo of King David’s, “Lord, Your face I will seek!”. (Psalm 27:8) read more

  • How Wide the Father's Love for Us - SO Loved Part 5

    Jesus didn’t die just to take our place on the cross but so we could be part of God’s family. To become heirs with Him. Not to become God but to be able, like Jesus, to call God, Abba, Father. It’s time we live in the grace that has been freely bestowed on us. It’s time we live like the masterpieces we have been created to be (and with that comes doing the work God has planned for us.) read more

  • How Long the Father's Love for Us - SO Loved Part 4

    He went from heaven to hell for us. That is a great extent. A long way to go to love. To send His perfect and sinless Son to die in our place. That is long love. Length is used for the greatest dimension when measuring an object. I couldn’t think of a better way of describing the death and resurrection of Jesus within God’s plan of redemption for the sake of loving us. The greatest act of His love, to die for me. To die for you. To die for the world because He so loved the world. read more

  • How High the Father's Love for Us - SO Loved Part 3

    How high the Father's love for us! As I read through the story of the announcement and birth of Jesus, I noticed the number of times the word 'high' is used in this piece of scripture. For God so loved us that He sent His Son from the highest heaven to be born in a humble stable. This distance is a journey of high love. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High! Yet love compelled Him to come to earth as a completely dependent baby. read more

  • How Deep the Father's Love for Us - SO Loved Part 2

    Picture the plain dirt of the newly formed earth. The most beautiful trees, flowers, and shrubs surround a focused on patch of dark ground. Slowly and carefully a form starts to take shape. Rumored to be the crown of creation, made in the image of God, a body is visible, arms, and legs. A head and face. Laying lifeless on the earth. Then with care and kindness the Father bends down and breaths the breath of life into the man. And it was very good. read more

  • SO Loved Part 1

    The theme we have chosen for camp this summer is So Loved. God’s love for us is huge! It’s wider, longer, higher, and deeper than we can ever fully understand. We live in a world where love has conditions, requirements, and is often questioned. It’s hard for us as humans to understand and accept the unconditional love God has to offer. read more

  • For Everything There is a Season

    Over the last 6 weeks, we have seen every season that Saskatchewan experiences. On October 2, we had a nice warm summer day, and over 1100 people came out to the Corn Maze. On October 5, we had a day of winter with 18 inches of snow falling. Towards the end of October, we experienced all the spring offers with melting snow, mud, puddles, and even some trees starting to produce buds. Lately, in November, we are experiencing the fall we never had in October. read more
