It was another great time-travelling day at Grace Bible Day Camp! We were so happy to see our time travelers and time keepers again. A lot of friendships are forming already!
During lesson time, we traveled many places in the Old Testament where Jesus shows up! Our memory verse was Hebrews 13:8: "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and
today and forever." We learned that Jesus always has been and always will be a promise keeper, from Old Testament times to forever, and that's why we can trust Him.
When we read the Old Testament, we find accounts of Jesus Christ (not yet named Jesus) appearing to people such as Abraham and Moses, and we also find promise after promise about Jesus coming as a baby. This is because the whole Old Testament is about Jesus. In fact, the whole Bible is about Jesus! The Old Testament points to his coming. The beginning of the New Testament records that he came! And the rest of the New Testament points to his coming again.
Even though Jesus may take on different forms, such as the Angel of the Lord, a baby in a manger, and a person with a resurrected body, he’s still the same Jesus. His nature and attributes never change. He is still loving, compassionate, good, kind, perfect, and much more!
We're so thankful it didn't rain, so we could go to the park in the afternoon! After lunch, we talked with our counselors about what we learned today and how we can trust Jesus no matter what. Then the Time Trekkers & Era Explorers faced off for some more large-group games!
