Easter Craft - A Gospel Egg

As our kids were growing up, we created a "Gospel Egg" - a single resurrection egg or "Promise Egg" to share the gospel story and true meaning of Easter rather than a regular "golden" or surprise egg. This was before the days we were able to purchase or knew about making resurrection eggs, which I am so thankful are popular today!

These are fun to make with your Sunday school class or Awana kids too; even preschoolers will enjoy this Easter activity! This way each child can take one home and share the Gospel story with their friends and family! Make sure to print out the Scriptures - John 3:16-18 to fold up and place in each egg!

Why Take Time for Devotions?

Do you need a spiritual telescope to help you keep your focus on the eternal throughout your busy day? Try taking a few minutes every day (maybe even three times a day!) to snack on tidbits of the Good News with daily Bible devotions. I promise it won't make you gain weight! (well, maybe "spiritual" weight and that's a positive thing!)

Take A Look at Daniel

Daniel (remember- the guy in the lion's den?) He knew how to really listen to God throughout the day. Daniel 6:10 says: "But when Daniel learned that the law had been signed, he went home and knelt down as usual in his upstairs room, with its windows open toward Jerusalem. He prayed three times a day, just as he had always done, giving thanks to his God."

Three times a day, Daniel paused to pray and give thanks to God. He was focused on God and listening; that's what a Bible devotion is designed to help us do. They're short, concise and don't take long to read, but they give us a thought from Scripture that will carry us through the day with our focus on God.

Now, in Daniel 9:2: "During the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, was studying the writings of the prophets. I learned from the word of the LORD, as recorded by Jeremiah the prophet, that Jerusalem must lie desolate for seventy years."

What was he doing? Studying the writings of the prophets? That would be the Bible, right? Yes, Daniel also did some serious Bible study. We can't just live on snacks all the time. We need to take time to sit down and enjoy a full meal too.

God was able to do amazing things in the life of Daniel. Much of it was because Daniel was willing to seek God's face and take time to listen to His will. Daniel kept his focus on the eternal.

Father, please help me to be like Daniel and seek your face daily. Help me to learn to hear your voice even above the "noise" of the busyness of life and see what's really important. Thank you that You walk with me each and every day and have rescued me from the lion's den.

Read one of Daniel's prayers - Daniel 9:3-19

By the way, did you realize you just read a Bible devotion? It didn't take but a minute - but I hope the idea sticks with you all day.

Read the Bible Through - in a Year "More or Less"

It's not too late!

I had never read the Bible all the way through until about ten years ago when an 80 year old lady shared she had just finished for the first time. I thought, "There's still time!" And I am so glad I did!

You may or may not have ever read the Bible all the way through, but I am here to encourage you - it’s worth it! When we read a story by skipping around, it can become confusing. The Bible is God’s story and how He desires for us to know Him.

But the Bible is even more than a story; it’s an experience – a life changing experience! Hebrews 4:12 tells us that God’s Word is living and active; it’s unlike any other book you’ve ever read. Therefore, I created this “doable” Bible reading plan that will take you from the beginning and help you make the connections of how it all joins together into one beautiful love story.

This plan is designed with 5 readings for 5 days a week (with a bit of flexibility) to read through the Bible in one year, or take your time and read at your own pace. The "Making Connections" plan may be printed and used to mark off verses as you go.

Flexibility: Start whenever you’re ready with a flexible start date any time of the year. Move at your own pace; although the readings are possible to be finished in a year, take as long as you need. Adapt this plan to you. No matter how you use it, this Bible reading plan will take you on a journey to better understand God’s story as a whole.

Wiggle Room: Each week contains five days of reading – your choice of which days. Reading at least five days a week will help you form a habit; it will keep you consistent. This leaves you two extras just in case your schedule becomes super busy or you just want to have a couple of days for your choice of reading or time to study a little deeper. This plan can actually be finished in 50 weeks with fewer readings toward the end as we get into the Book of Revelation.

Balance: Each week contains readings from Psalms for praise, Proverbs of wisdom, lots of Old Testament reading (there are 929 verses in the OT!) and a New Testament reading. This gives both a variety and continuity. Many events in the Old Testament portray God in His sovereignty and justice. Balancing this with His revealed love we see through Jesus gives us a full picture of His character balanced with justice and love, righteousness and compassion, truth and grace.

Waiting for Christmas

One of the longest waits is the nine months of pregnancy. There is nothing to be done to hurry it along, but in that time of waiting - there is much taking place!

Waiting is not idle; it is not empty. Much is accomplished in the wait and the outcome is so worth it!

"Zechariah and Elizabeth were righteous in God's eyes, careful to obey all of the Lord's commandments and regulations."

BUT

"They had no children because Elizabeth was unable to conceive, and they both were very old."

"But the angel said, "Don't be afraid, Zechariah! God has heard your prayer. Your wife, Elizabeth, will give you a son, and you are to name him John."

"for he will be great in the eyes of the Lord."

God gave more than was expected, but all hinged on His perfect timing.

We can know God is at work even in the wait!

The full story of Zechariah & Elizabeth is found in the Gospel of Luke chapter 1 and is but one of the Bible stories of those who were a part of that very first Christmas.
