BTLN UPDATE - MIKE 23
Don't look now, but last years Winston Champion is back on top! Jakob is tied with Deshawn for first place in the Winston Standings! Congrats Jakob! This was Jakob's second Helmet of the Btln season. Dylan was there again at the end, but was not able to get the win. Dylan has been close so many times, he is overdue for his first win of the Season!
This week we played MIKE 23! This game has evolved into one of my Btln favourites. MIKE 23 gets better each and every time that we play it. For most of the game, Noah's team had a healthy lead. Just before the last round they were up by ten points! The problem with a large lead is that, the other three teams will gang up on the team that has the lead. In the end, it was Jason's team with the huge come from behind victory!
MIKE 23 Final Scores
Jason's Team - (7)
Ryley's Team - (6)
Noah's Team - (6)
Cam's Team - (-2)
This week Noah led us in the Bible Study! It was so good to hear and watch Noah lead the Bible Study! It has been so amazing to watch Noah grow into a man of God!
Our Bible Study topic was "Treasures on earth"
Ecclesiastes 5:10 Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.
If money is our goal, we will never have enough!
Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Proverbs 23:4-5 Do not wear yourself out to get rich; do not trust your own cleverness. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.
All of the nice things of this world will eventually decay or fall apart. It is not bad to have nice things, but our lives should not be consumed with attaining as much as we can on this earth. Our goal should be, to store up treasures in heaven!
Philippians 3:7-8 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.
All of the things of this world cannot compare to knowing Christ! And we will have all eternity to get to know Jesus better!
2 Corinthians 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.
Jesus gave up his riches so that we could become rich! This is the example that we need to follow!
It is Royal Rumble 13 next week at Btln! Wednesday, November 8th. Don't be late and bring a friend!
