We have the wonderful promise of salvation through Christ alone. However, what can convince us of the truth of this? Scripture reminds us that Jesus is not just another story or legend. We have the hope of knowing that the Bible is the true and reliable Word of God. The Gospel good news we have assures us that Jesus truly lived, died, and rose again, which provides us with peace and joy that can only be found in knowing the Lord. This passage reminds us that we can trust in Jesus and put Him first in our lives.

Children’s Sermon Lesson
What does it mean to believe in Jesus? How do we know the truth of what He says and who He is? We teach children many stories from the Bible, but it is important for us to emphasize that the Bible is the true word of God, and every story in it actually happened. This message contrasts popular legends and fairy tale stories with the life of Jesus, to explain that Jesus truly did live on Earth. The message also reminds kids that although we don’t see Him, He is still alive and with us today!
Sunday School Crafts
There are a lot of stories and myths that seem to go around these days. Children need reminded that the Bible is not just a collection of fictional tales, but verifiable truths, and ones that we should recognize as the most essential influences in our lives. These crafts aim to stress for kids that Jesus was and is alive and real, and that seeking Him is the most important thing we can do. “Seeing-Eye Glasses” recall how we know Christ is with us, even if we don’t physically see Him. A “Most Important Things Collage” looks at the difference between things we want, need, and need most of all.
Children’s Worship Song about Jesus is Risen
1 Corinthians 15:1-11English Standard Version
The Resurrection of Christ
15 Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, 2 and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. 8 Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. 9 For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. 11 Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.
