Seen. Known. Loved.

We all crave these things, but where, or in whom do we?

This summer, Josiah Venture is serving alongside 130 Central & Eastern European churches reaching the youth in their communities. These youth all long to be seen, fully known & loved, but seek attention in the wrong places. Our camp theme is Seen, where we are exposing them to truth about the One who sees, knows & loves each of us perfectly!

So may I ask, do you know Him? If not, look no further then to…

♥️ Yourself
Did you know you were created by God, & for God, who loves you & wants to have a personal relationship with you?

❌ Your biggest problem
Did you know that you & I were born sinful, disobeying God; living for our selves? Sin separates us from God. Good works are not enough. Religion is not enough.

✝️ God’s solution
Did you know even when we disobey God, He still wants a relationship with us? He sent His only son, Jesus, to earth to become a man (Christmas). Though he was perfect, Jesus died on the cross & took the punishment for your sins. After three days, God raised him from the dead, breaking the power of sin & death (Easter).

❓What you should do
At this very moment, you are seen, known, loved & accepted. To become a child of God, all you have to do is talk to your Creator, as you would anyone else, and…

1. Confess – agree with God that you are a sinner.

2. Believe – accept in faith that Jesus is the son of God and died for your sins.

3. Accept – personally receive Christ’s gift of forgiveness & payment for your sins. Receive him as your Lord & Savior.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16

It’s that simple. And if you have accepted Christ, yet still seeking attention in the wrong places, remember your identity is in Christ. He is your Father, & you are His child, whom He loves!

Seek no more, & live in this truth!
