The cross carried by Christ to wash His blood over our sins, the grace and love...
Everyday adding our photos to the cross, everyday "We pause to listen to the word..." We linger on this, and we allow it to marinate in us, and flavor our lives. We then on Friday "Tell the Easter Story with a Playdough Mountain" taking the time to form the mountain,
making the cross, creating the scene
it is a reason to stop and meditate on HIS story... on OUR story.
He sets in the tomb that night. DEAD!
He is ALIVE come Sunday!
The beauty of the cross is what it leads to HIS overcoming of death, HIS salvation over us...
Luk again teaches as we do this activity, make the crown of thorns because that's what they made Him wear. We have to remember what we do to Him everyday that we ignore His word and choose our way over His. The crown gets pushed further in, the nails pull Him even more, and His blood STILL sheds for us. Resurrection Sunday more important than Christmas and His birth because without His death, we will have lost it all.
In Christ alone...
