Prison Break

The theme this year at Camp Shetek is 'Prison Break'.  They are sharing with the kids how our sins make us slaves or prisoners, keeping us from freedom, living a spiritual life sentence living on death row.  But there is a way out!  The Bible gives us the escape plan!  It's found in Jesus's work on the cross.  All we have to do is acknowledge our imprisonment to sin and run through the wide open gate to freedom that Jesus provides for us.
Jesus says in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."  The only way to get to God is through him.  The world will try to offer you other escape plans:  be a good person, go to church, have someone pray for your soul when you die, do more good than bad.  But God says in the Bible that the only way to escape is to give our lives to Jesus.  He is the way.  The only  way.
