Today is the day that I begin my journey into camp ministries. I’ll be working at a camp from now until the end of July. I’m super stoked to spend every week with a new batch of middle schoolers. I’m sad to say that I wont be posting as much. I’ll be back around the beginning of august, but NotN just added a new writer. He’s a pretty rad guy, friend, writer, and Jesus follower. And he has mad worship leading skills.
I’d love for you to go back and check out some previous blogs. Maybe read a few you haven’t read, share it somewhere, show your friends, and keep sending rad comments.
So I’d like to say see ya later to you guys for now! This blog owes everything to you guys. The ones who stick around with the posts. The ones who look through my writing mistakes and bad jokes. The ones who comment and let us know that you guys are there. And of course, to God for even giving us this opportunity to reach people.
I leave with this one verse, “This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us” (1 John 4:10)
Remember dudes, I’ve said this a million times before, but it’s not about us. It’s not about our good deeds, our merits, our righteous acts to impress others…it’s all about Jesus. It’s always been about Jesus, it still is always about Jesus, and it’ll never stop being about Jesus.
Later on in verse 19 it says, “we love because He first loved us.” We don’t love Him to get something out of it. We don’t love Him for selfish reasons. We love Him because He first loved us. We love Him because before we were even born He was thinking about us. We love Him because without Him we wouldn’t have this new life. We love Him because without Him we wouldn’t have a purpose. We wouldn’t have meaning. We wouldn’t have our identity.
Jesus is the center of our worship. He is the reason we are here.
So love Him dudes. Look to Him for answers. Look to Him for help. Look to Him for everything. And never stop loving Jesus.
Love you dudes, but more importantly, Jesus loves you dudes. Follow the blog on twitter and facebook @notofthenorm, or email us at email@example.com.
Please pray for me as I’m away. I’ll see you guys soon. Until then, keep on keeping on.
