Reflecting on Good Friday
Good Friday comes with a heaviness. But we have to remember why Good Friday is so good despite the suffering Jesus faced on the cross that day. Good Friday means we are able to rejoice on Sunday – we can celebrate with the King of Kings on Easter because of his sacrifice.
“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” – Isaiah 53:5
Today marks the pinnacle of God’s desire to save his children – us – from our sins by sacrificing his son. And the story doesn’t end on Good Friday! Because on the third day, Easter Sunday, Jesus defeated death and rose from the grave. Love met with evil on the cross – and love won. He is risen!
“I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth.” – Job 19:25
Life and death may be challenging concepts to discuss with your child, but it’s important for them to understand the true meaning of Easter relative to their age. If you’re looking for a few age-appropriate ways to share the Easter story with your children this weekend, here are four creative ways.
We pray you have a beautiful Easter weekend and celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus.
