BIBLE BASIS: Psalm 121 and John 20:1-9

Easter comes crashing upon us with the awesome power of ocean waves breaking against the shore. We’re swept away by the almost incomprehensible idea of what God’s love has done for us through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Everything we are as Christians is held together by the impact of Easter. The empty tomb was God’s final statement that we are his children, and not even the finality of death is more powerful than faith in our risen Lord.

John 20:1-9 tells us the story of the empty tomb. The first eyes that looked around in that empty tomb were rubbed in disbelief. Who stole Jesus’ body? Why would they do that? No, it can’t be true. He can’t be alive again. Or is he?

Then he came into their presence. They saw his hands, and they experienced his glorious radiance. They heard the promise for all eternity that he would be with them and us. These are ideas so lofty that we barely comprehend them. This is truth so spectacular that we spend a lifetime getting new glimpses into it.

The good news of Easter becomes even more majestic when laid alongside the promises of Psalm 121. The God who kept Israel now keeps us secure in the arms of Jesus. The God who has always been more powerful than any evil now equips us with the ultimate weapon of the lordship of Christ. Yes, God was there in the heart of the psalmist, and God is here in our lives through the Easter message.

    I just came across this childrensministry.com and it’s very easy and simple.I became a Sunday school teacher for four years and this is a last thing that I want to do because of the language.I wasn’t asked for this position as a teacher but my name was called to be blessed by our minister in front of our congregation and I got no choice.Since then I enjoy teaching n I’m not scared or feel ashamed because I can feel that God is helping me to speak my second language and to teach the children about his Bible.I will be happy if you send me your newsletter please.
