On the Way--Day 4 at DDA Camp

Last week I served as a counselor to developmentally disabled adults at White Memorial Camp in Council Grove, Kansas. The theme for the week was, "On the Way." Pictures of this special camp are available here.
Then Jesus came to [the eleven disciples] and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20)
Jesus calls you and me to follow Him on the way.

The way is not a road to nowhere. The way is not ours to make up.

The way is given by our Maker. The way has a purpose—a goal—a destination.

Our aim is to be a disciple of Jesus—a follower of Him.

Our purpose is to identify our life with Jesus—a decision symbolized through baptism.

Our goal is to align our life by everything that Jesus teaches.

Our mission is to invite others into this blessed life with Jesus.

Our promise is that Jesus will be with us on the way—always and forever—till the very end of the age.

Today, are you walking with Jesus on the way? Walk with Him. Because the way of Jesus is the way of life.
