With a huff and puff, she looked at her mom and said, “I love you too!” It was not exactly an affectionate statement, but it was the truth. Thirty minutes later, the daughter had prepared lunch without being asked. It was her mom’s favourite chicken clubhouse sandwich. The daughter restated her words earlier, with more affection, “I love you, mom!”

Her mom looked back, “I love you too; thanks for lunch. It’s my favourite!”

I want you to show love, not offer sacrifices. I want you to know me more than I want burnt offerings.

Hosea 6:6

Israelites worshiped God primarily through sacrifices and burnt offerings. God is less interested in our worship and more interested in you. I have followed Jesus for long enough now that I think I have figured out what his favourite thing is, and I am so confident in this that I am would boldly say that I am not wrong! Are you ready for this? Jesus’ favourite thing is love! When we show love to him and others, it’s his favourite, it brings him joy like nothing else!

I think this is one of the ways we all are created in God’s image. I think our favourite thing in others is when they show love! We have some big prayer requests for you this week!

Prayer Requests

The Alberta Camping Association, of which Covenant Bay is a part, is entering into discussions with the Alberta Government regarding summer camps for this year. The conversations are significant, as the decision-makers will take what was said into consideration as they create, change or keep the guidelines for summer camps this year. Pray that the best decisions and that God will lead our leaders.

2021 will be a year of significant change and growth for Covenant Bay. I expect that we will be full this fall with rental groups and events. The changes and growth will be exciting. Pray that we will be ready for growth, both in our facility and in our personnel.

Finally, we have one purpose here at Covenant Bay. To see people grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Would you celebrate what God is going to do this summer? While don’t know all the detail of how he will work, I believe that God will do something beyond us and use us in great ways. I believe that we will have even more reason to take pride in Christ Jesus because of what God will do through Covenant Bay this summer. Let’s praise God together.

Thank you for praying. Remember Jesus’ favourite thing. There is no ministry apart from Christ. Pray with urgency and expectation.
