16/04/18 – The Risen Christ – Disciples of Christ – Walking with Christ

Why did Jesus die on the cross?

Jesus died knowing that you would do things wrong (that is what a sin is) — things that you’re not supposed to — not obeying your parents, saying something mean to your sister or brother, or not telling the truth.

He knew what you would do when He died so many years ago. Jesus died for everybody’s sins, so now when we ask God to forgive us, and we are truly sorry for what we’ve done, He will act like it never happened. He forgets what we did!

Now that doesn’t mean we should ever make the same mistake again, because by doing that it’s like we’re hurting Jesus all over again. So, next time you do something you’re not supposed to, remember to say sorry to Jesus, and remember what He did for you!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

 

 

Disciples of Jesus- Following in Jesus’ footsteps

 

People made fun of Jesus and called him mean names, but he didn’t call them names back. He only said good things to people. People beat Jesus up and threw rocks at him, but he didn’t start a fight with them or threaten to get even. He left it up to God to judge them for the wrongs they did. He forgave them when they hurt him.

We all make mistakes and do wrong, but if we are sorry for what we have done and ask God to forgive us, he will. If you have a hard time being like Jesus, you can ask God to help you.

How can you follow in his footsteps?
