This month (March 2014) we mark the one year anniversary of the Catechism instruction curriculum in the 4-year-old through 3rd grade Sunday School class. Consider this impressive list of essential and timeless doctrines that these young ones have learned over the past 12 months:
During a break between series, we also spent four weeks leading up to Christmas learning more about Jesus’s Family Tree and how our Savior’s birth was promised from the beginning of the world. We also discovered how the Lord provided types and shadows of Him and the work He would do for us in life, in death and in eternity. What a poignant and majestic message that provided for us during our Christmas season! (Advent Series)
Now as we look ahead to Resurrection Sunday, the day we set aside (not as a special holy day, but as a marker on our calendar) to consider the journey Jesus Christ made to the cross and the miracle of His glorious triumph over sin and death, the children will be hearing the message of the final lesson in Series C. “What do the Old and New Testaments promise about the risen Savior?” Incline your ear to this astounding answer: “The Old and New Testaments promise that He will come again for all His children.”
Why is this an astounding answer? Because only a reigning, living Savior can rescue His people from this dying world.
Have you heard the good news? He is alive! We do not worship the memory of a good man who lived two thousand years ago. We bend the knee in devotion and cheerful and willing submission to the Son of God, the King on the throne, who is as alive today as He was when He walked the earth. Just as He has released us from the chains of sin’s punishment and power, He will one day snatch us from the presence of sin. Nothing has ever in all of time had the power to do that. Nothing. God has promised that “Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him” (Hebrews 9:28).
His word is true.
