Helpful info as you present this week message to your children: Jesus’ purpose for coming to earth was to save us from our sins (Matt. 1:21). Jesus came to die to show God’s love to us (Rom. 5:7-8) so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). Jesus came to die so that we would be forgiven (Eph. 1:7). Jesus came to die to bring us to God (1 Pet. 3:18).

Jesus died on the cross to satisfy the wrath of God toward sin. His resurrection proved that God was satisfied with Jesus’ sacrifice. If Jesus had died but not been raised up, He would have been like military leaders who died without a throne (Acts 5:33-37). But Jesus conquered death, just as He said He would (John 2:19-21). If there was no resurrection, Paul says, our faith would be worthless. We would be dead in our sins (1 Cor. 15:17).

But Jesus’ resurrection gives us hope for our resurrection. The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead will raise our bodies to life (Rom. 8:11).

Jesus’ death and resurrection is the center of the gospel. In Adam, we were spiritually dead in sin, but Jesus died to pay for our sins. Jesus is alive! God gives new life to everyone who trusts and follows Jesus. As you share with your kids, emphasize the gospel: the good news of who Jesus is and what He has done. We do not worship a dead Savior. Jesus is alive! There is hope for sinners. Jesus’ resurrection gives believers the promise of new life. “For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive” (1 Cor. 15:22).

Thank you for joining us online to present the greatest story ever told--God's plan to rescue His people from their sin through His Son, Jesus! See you next week!
