Studentz Camp 2009: Dash

Camp 2009 was July 13–17 at Liberty University and featured the theme Dash, based on 1 Corinthians 9:24.

Do you not know that in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win.
1 Corinthians 9:24

Special guests:

  • Algernon Tennyson, speaker
  • Pocket Full of Rocks, worship band
  • Tom Toombs, comedy/drama
  • Seth Franco, speaker/basketball presentation
  • Krystal Meyers, concert
  • Wavorly, concert

Athletic festivals or games were an important part of the Greek culture, and the race was always a major attraction at those games. The Apostle Paul uses the race to illustrate the faithful Christian life. No one would train so hard for so long without intending to win. The great difference is that every Christian who will “pay the price for training” can win. Many believers start the Christian life with enthusiasm and devotion. They may start well but soon tire out and fall away.

Are you in the race? Are you carrying extra baggage that will slow you down? Do you just want to give up because you feel it is just too hard? Do you want the prize without doing what you have been asked to do? Are you in the race, willing and committed to the end?
