He Is Risen! (Apr 20-21)
We worship Jesus as Lord. This weekend we remember Jesus’ death and resurrection. It’s because of His sacrifice that we can have a life forever with Him.
In big church, Pastor Matt is sharing from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. Let’s look at this passage.
When you sit at home: Read Ephesians 1:18-23 (NIrV). In this part of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, he tells them what he is praying for them. This prayer is for us as well. What is Paul’s prayer for God’s people?
When you walk along the road: What does Paul want believers to understand about God’s power?
When you lie down: Pray this prayer each day this week: “Lord Jesus, thank You for the gift of eternal life. I give you my heart and my life. Amen.”
When you get up: Play this variation of "I Spy" as a reminder that the true celebration of Easter is about seeking and knowing God through Jesus our Savior! Choose a color. Take turns calling out something you see (or think of)that God made of that color: "I spy a yellow sun God made!" or"I spy a blue lake God made!" When you run out of ideas, choose a different color and play again. At the end, have everyone say thank you to God for Jesus because He is the reason for Easter!
