Read this out loud:
Easter can be a really fun time of celebrating that Jesus died for us and rose from the dead. Maybe you went to a church service, or had a meal with people you love, or even had a party. But Easter isn’t just about the things we do — it’s also about what we BELIEVE. And even if we hear the Good News about Jesus, we can sometimes be confused or even have doubts or questions. Or maybe we just have a hard time believing what God says about us: that he loves us and wants to rescue us.
And guess what — that’s OK! Jesus’s closest friends had a hard time believing he had risen from the dead — and they could actually see, touch, and even talk to him! Read Luke 24:36-39
God doesn’t expect us to have all the answers or to never have doubts. He wants us to trust him. And trusting God is like a lot of things…it takes practice.
Let’s watch this and then we’ll have a conversation:
Let’s talk about it:
- If you were one of Jesus’ disciples (or followers) and you saw him after he came back to life, how do you think you would have reacted
- How/Why is Jesus dying on a cross and coming back to life Good News for us?
- How can we remind each other about the Good News, even if we’re confused or have a hard time believing it’s true?
