God sent Jesus to save us!

Colossians 1:13 He has saved us from the kingdom of darkness. He has brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves. 

Today was the day of the camp-wide water fight! All the campers, camp counsellors, nurses, cooks and maintenance people participated. Several plastic pools were filled with water. The players could use water guns, super soakers or pails to grab water and soak the opposite team. The driest team would win the battle.

During the water fight, Milo ran to a pool to fill up her water gun. While she was bent over, one of the camp counsellors was about to dump a jug of water onto Milo’s head! But A.J. saw what was about to happen and he used his super-soaker to distract the counsellor. Milo was saved from getting soaked!

Today’s Bible Memory Verse at camp is found in Colossians 1:13.

He has saved us from the kingdom of darkness. He has brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves. 

Milo was saved by A.J. from getting soaked with water. Jesus has saved us from so much more! When we live in sin it is like we are living in darkness. But Jesus died for us on a cross to take the punishment for our sin. When we put our faith in him, we are forgiven and cleansed from our sin. He saves us from the darkness and brings us into his kingdom.

Milo was glad to be saved from getting soaked by water, but she is even more happy to be saved from sin by Jesus!
