I love preaching forgiveness; I love preaching of the beauty of Christ and the gospel, I love preaching God's standards for a variety of things; I hate preaching to teens about sex...but that's what I'm about to do...
is not really the word, dislike because of the age and relative
innocence of some of the campers; anger because in any crowd I am sadly
confident there will be victims of abuse who think they need
forgiveness; aware that in any crowd (of any age) there will be those
who profess Christ and at the very same time think it is okay to engage
in pre/extra/homosexual sex...
hope is built in nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness; and a
sanctified awareness that He has called me to this; I've studied and
prepared as best I can, and begged His Spirit to control my mouth and
grant me grace to speak as He gives the campers...and staff...the grace
I'll be speaking in less than an hour; prayers longed for and appreciated
