Congrats Dane! This was Dane's first Helmet of the Btln season! The final two were Dane and Jakob. Jakob already has one Helmet this year, so he had a bulls eye on his back. Both Dane and Jakob have been close to winning Bulldog in the last few weeks, this time it was Dane's turn to wear the Helmet!

Mike 23 is a game that we don't play very often and is always taking a back seat to original Mike. For some, Mike 23 is their favourite. Mike 23 has all the chaos of Mike, but with the lights on. I love how the scores rise and fall. The six mini games that we play in Mike 23 give the teams that are losing a chance to pick on the team that is in the lead. Dylan's team had a three point lead going into the last round, but lost on the last round because the other three teams picked on them.

First number is 5th round. Second number is sixth and final round.
Tyson's Team - (16) - (14)
Bryce's Team - (15) - (9)
Dylan's Team - (19) - (2)
Jakob's Team - (1) - (-5)

Our Bible Study topic this week was "What should we know?"

Romans 16:19   Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I rejoice because of you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil.

1 Corinthians 14:20   Brothers and sisters, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.

In these passages, Paul tells us that we need to be wise about what is good and innocent like children when it comes to our knowledge of things that are evil.

Philippians 4:8   Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

This next passage sets the guidelines for us, as far as things that could be considered good. As I was reading this passage I realized that all of the traits listed here apply to God. Jesus is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy.

Philippians 3:7-9   But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.

Ephesians 1:17-21   I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
Philippians 3:10-11   I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.
Ephesians 3:16-19   I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Knowing Christ and the love that he has for us is the most important thing that we could ever know! Everything else we could know or understand is like garbage in comparison to knowing Christ!
