I am He

Glow stick truth

Glow stick truth

Judas Iscariot led a company of soldiers into the garden, armed with torches and weapons, and ended up falling to the ground in the presence of Jesus. In fact, Jesus approached them and asked who they were looking for, even though He knew. Jesus was, and is, God, and responded to the mob by giving them a glimpse through His words of His true identity. When the group said they were looking for Jesus of Nazareth, He responded, “I am He.”

Jesus IS the Great I AM. He is the God who created the universe, the God who brought the Israelites out of Egypt with amazing signs and wonders, the Jesus who was slain before the foundation of the world.

In the aftermath of Jesus being arrested, His disciples scattered. They ran away terrified into the dark of the night. After our Bible study time, we played glow stick seek and find. Each kid took turns hiding glow sticks all over the living room, and the other worked to find them all in the dark.

Read about Jesus being arrested in the garden in John 18:3-11.

Do this to remember Me

Jackson and Lauren are ready to celebrate communion

Today as a family, we gathered around and shared bread and juice to remember the death of Jesus. We broke bread together and prayed, asking God to clean our hearts and thanking Him for breaking His body on the cross to save us. We passed a cup of grape juice around our circle, thanking Jesus for being our perfect sacrifice and shedding His blood to cover our sins.

Family Communion is one of the most special traditions we observe around Easter.┬áIn fact, Jackson arranged our living room, with pillows for each of us to sit around the ottoman, before I had even gotten out of bed this morning in anticipation of sharing the Lord’s Supper.

Read Matthew 26:26-30 with your family this week before Resurrection Sunday, and then follow Jesus’ instructions to remember what He did for you.

We finished up our 2 Weeks 2 the Cross time singing praise, just as the disciples did as they left the Upper Room and headed out to the Garden of Gethsemane.

Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong. They are weak but He is strong. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. The Bible tells me so.
