He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. ~Matthew 28:6
Just wanted to show our little craft we did on Good Friday. I am trying to teach Maddie that Easter isn’t all about the bunny and candy, it is about an amazing Man who came to this earth to show us how to live. To show us how to handle criticism, how to deal with non-believers, sick, poor and every one else.
Easter is about a Man that did so much for us, went through so much for us! He was beaten for who He was, where He came from, and He was crucified for it. He did it for us! So that we can be forgiven and live forever with Him!
Easter is the day that He rose again, came back to see His disciples and to breathe the Holy Spirit into them so they would be able to carry on His work!!
And with that He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. ~ John 20:22
It is an amazing story, one that we should truly pass on and remember. It’s not about the Easter bunny and the candy he leaves for us. It’s about Jesus, giving His life for us and then giving us the Holy Spirit so that we may never walk in the dark again!!
Here’s her little craft she did.
