He is Risen, Indeed!
Happy Easter! Every approaching holiday holds a special magic for children ours included for sure! Now for us, at this point at least, we tend to skip over the cultural holidays in the States. We’ve got enough going on with the basics and with local Philippine holidays that we chose not to prioritize commercialized American holidays. However, this means that we can emphasize what really matters, like Christmas and Easter!
It’s such a joy to read several Bible story books, bedtime devotionals and Bible readers with our kids. Watching their growing understanding and anticipation of the birth of Jesus and His death and Resurrection is incredible. And it’s truly amazing when they question and comment in ways that shows God is working in their hearts.
This Easter, may the grace and peace of our RISEN Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, reign in your heart and life. Know that He conquered death and ensured our forever place together with Him in heaven, glorifying God and restored to a right relationship with our heavenly Father. What a gift!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you!” 1 Peter 1:3-4
