Use this Resurrection Sunday School lesson to teach children about Jesus' resurrection, and ours.
Tell students, I want you all to pretend like you're sleeping...
Okay. Now I want you all to pretend like you're dead...
Okay. You know what I noticed? When you were pretending to be dead, you still looked like you were sleeping!
in fact, sleeping and dying are almost the exact same thing to God. God
knows that no one is really ever dead. Our bodies might die, but our
spirits keep living.
And one day, when Jesus comes
back, He's even going to bring our bodies back to life, just like His
body came back to life on that first Easter.
bring our spirits back with Him from Heaven and He will put our spirits
back in our bodies and make our bodies all better and healthy so that
we will never die again. It will be like He's waking our bodies up from a
nap and we will live with Him forever.
when we celebrate Jesus' resurrection on Easter, we are also looking
forward to our resurrection when Jesus comes back.
