Every day, our Kampers have the awesome opportunity to hear from our K-Seven directors. Keith Chancey addresses the kids and talks with them about what it looks like to Run Free from the guilt and shame that comes with past mistakes. Keith uses Hebrews 12:1-2, Psalm 32:3, and 1 John 1:9 to drive home that freedom comes from confessing our sins, receiving forgiveness from Jesus, and turning away from those struggles.
When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9
Sin is messy. At the end of the day it leaves us feeling empty. However, the forgiveness of Jesus Christ sets us free from our sins and allows us to live in that freedom. The freedom of Christ is available to anyone who is willing to receive it. We are all sinful and broken and for that reason, God sent Jesus to Earth. On Earth, Jesus lived a perfect life and then was crucified on the cross. Three days later he rose from the dead, defeating death itself. Jesus's death and resurection acts as the atonement for our sins if we choose to believe in Him and dedicate our lives to Him. In Christ we can all Run Free.
