There were some tough stories to read this weekend from THE BIG PICTURE STORY BIBLE. Friday it was all about how Jesus suffered. Saturday was so sad thinking about how his followers missed him and were in the dark about what had happened.
I pondered those stories............... Friday night I was at a baptism service for Creek Kids. We celebrated 11 kids coming to faith. We couldn't have celebrated that without Christ's suffering. We couldn't have a relationship with God without Christ dying for us. We wouldn't have a gift to accept without him taking on our punishment.
It was all part of the plan from the beginning. Today as you read Part 23 - Jesus showed his followers the plan. He showed them how it was written in the scriptures for hundreds of years. God loved us so much that He made a plan for us. He knew that we would sin and not be able to get to Him. He gave His son to die for us. Jesus - took on our punishment - is our rescuer!
Celebrate that plan - your rescue plan today as you read Part 23. Share your story of faith with your children. Celebrate our Father's love for us............even while we are such sinners.
Create a beautiful picture showing how God rescued you. If you bring it to PeeWeeVille this week, we will put it in our Art Show. Celebrate.........help your children to celebrate and not forget what Christ did for us.
