Devotions, Tips, and Activities

He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day.”

LUKE 24:46

Family Quest

It’s amazing that God would come to earth as Jesus. But it’s even more amazing that He died on the cross and then rose from the grave. He even walked around and visited with His friends after His resurrection. And He is alive now. As a reminder, plant some seeds in plastic cups. Place the cups in a warm place like the top of your refrigerator. Once they begin to sprout, place them on the windowsill of a sunny window. Water as needed.

Talk It Out

· Do you know the story of Jesus?

· Why do we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection? Which holiday is that?

· Why is this important to you?

Parent-Child Connection

Easter is often seen as the holiday that celebrates the coming of spring and warm weather. The Easter bunny, egg hunts, and chocolate are all fun for kids. But it is vital that they know the real reason we celebrate Easter. Jesus’ resurrection is a fundamental event for the world. It is our path to salvation. This calls for a much bigger celebration than a day of candy and games.

Talk to God

As you pray, encourage your child to (1) thank Jesus for being willing to die on the cross and (2) praise the Lord for His power to save us.
