Today, I wanted to reflect on this truth with more than just knowledge. More like a visual reminder of what Jesus did. With kids ranging from 15 to 3 in age, I was trying to find something that would capture all of their attention... And I did!!!
Well, not so much the 3 year old, but she did partake in it, briefly. Hey, 4 out of 5 ain't bad and I've learned not to expect perfection.
We have this cross hanging in our kitchen.
We got paper and folded it to make little rectangles to write different sins on it.
We thought of sins that we struggle with, and that our society struggles with. We opened our bibles to the book of Proverbs and wrote sins we found in there. It led to other scriptures and a great discussion on sins that we probably take for granted.
And this is what we ended up with! I love it!! I can't help but stare at it and thank Jesus for what he did.
And to think, this is probably just the beginning of it...
He bore all our sins and now we await Sunday!!
What did you do to reflect the crucifixion on Good Friday?
