Nearly 2,000 years ago, a simple wooden cross and an empty tomb served as the setting for the greatest rescue mission in history—the good news of a loving Father going to great lengths to save His broken children. Every year at Easter, with a joyful shout of “Christ is risen!” we declare again the climax of this great story. Although Easter Sunday only happens once a year, the truths behind it are big enough to shape our lives every single day. Starting on Palm Sunday, your family will spend two weeks (fourteen devotions) walking in time with Jesus as He finished the work His Father had given Him. Extending your devotional time into the week beyond Easter Sunday will encourage your family to follow the risen Jesus as He calls His disciples on a Spirit-filled mission to spread the good news to all nations. Your family will learn that God calls every Christ follower to that very same task, promising that His power and presence will help us as we go. Each devotion takes just ten minutes and is suitable for children of all ages. Included are suggestions for hymns to sing and family activities that give you a chance to remember and apply the truth that Christ is risen indeed!
Mission Accomplished starts with the Passion Week and extends into the week beyond Easter Sunday, walking kids through the immediate aftermath of the resurrection and then unpacking the implications of Jesus’ death and resurrection for our own lives.
