“Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakeable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire.” Hebrews 12:28-29
When God’s people first received God’s directives passed down to them by Moses, they heard The LORD calling them to see Him through a specific lens or viewpoint. The bible has often translated that view as ‘The Fear of The LORD,’ ‘Fear of God,’ ‘trembling and awe…’ The calling was for God’s people to learn to walk in a holy fear of Him and, naturally, to teach their children to do likewise.
For this year’s Father-Son Retreat at Camp Swamp our theme is “The Awe of God.” We will touch upon what the Fear of the Lord is, and what it’s not, and will point the fathers and sons to practical ways to walk in the Fear of the Lord. We will enjoy all the usual fun and bonding the Father-Son retreat has historically been filled with ! We look forward to awe-inspiring activities including lots of dodgeball, foosball and ping-pong tournaments, bonfires and s’mores, board games, football games and more!
