We are trying to have a nice balance in our house between celebrating Easter with the bunny, eggs, and baby chic's, and remembering the cross and Christ's great sacrifice for us.
This morning we have been having discussions about Christ and the real meaning of Easter. Our middle son is making a cake in the shape of a cross and the other kids said they would help him. My oldest son asked why people don't like us just because we believe in Christ and the Bible. We had a long discussion about this. I am glad my kids are so curious about their beliefs and do ask question of us about why we believe what we believe. At times it is scary to realize how much they are exposed to and I worry I am not explaining things to them well enough. I am so thankful for God's protection around them.
Thank You Jesus for dying on the cross for my sins. The Bible tells me that even if I were the only person on Earth Christ still would have died for me. I am worth the sacrifice. What an awesome God you truly are. Amen.
