Sunday, April 16, 2017
PRAY Heavenly Father, we thank you! You are generous and loving and so powerful! We ask that you continue to help us see our sin and to remember that you are the one to save us. Thank you for living and dying and rising all because you love us. Amen.
READ John 20:1-18
The greatest day in history – death is beaten, You have rescued me!
Sing it out: Jesus is alive!
The empty cross, the empty grave, life eternal, You have won the day.
Shout it out: Jesus is alive. He’s a – live!
Oh happy day, happy day, You washed my sin away.
Oh happy day, happy day, I’ll never be the same.
Forever I am changed.
When I stand in that place, free at last, meeting face to face,
I am Yours, Jesus, You are mine.
Endless joy, perfect peace.
Celebrate: Jesus is alive.
Earthly pain finally will cease.
He’s a – live!
Oh, what a glorious day, what a glorious way
That You have saved me
DO Read the story of the Resurrection three times. During the first reading, choose a color of paint that shows what you are feeling. Paint a page that color. During the second reading, write on your paper a word or words that God is whispering to you. During the third reading, add more doodles with paint or pens to show more about what you are experiencing with God.
