I can’t even believe that today is the beginning of the Lenten season! 40 days to prepare our hearts for the risen King! The One who took all of our sins, redeemed our lives, and ushered us into the hope of glory!
Man! Doesn’t that get you excited?
I was praying recently for a way to celebrate this season with my kids, as well as educate them about Jesus, and the Lord dropped an idea into my lap.
Study HIS words – 1 verse per day – leading up to Easter Sunday.
As I made these little cards, I felt so encouraged and inspired writing out the very words of Christ as He lived and did ministry here on earth over 2,000 years ago. I pray that every day you will not just read a card and move along, but that these verses will be springboards for fruitful conversations with your families about Jesus! Food for your souls!
Because, as Day 2 reads, “People do not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD that comes from the mouth of God!” (Matthew 4:4)
So dwell on Christ! Soak up His words – He shared these messages with YOU in mind.
May they be a lamp to your feet and a light to your path as we anticipate the empty tomb and the glorious resurrection of our King.
One of the last things Jesus said before ascending to heaven after His resurrection was, “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations…” Would you mind sharing this post with the people in your world, so that we can get a lot of families all over the world spending time with/growing in Jesus this Easter season?
God bless you!
I will be praying for you all as we cling to the very words of Christ!
