In the Church, during the Season of Lent, Christians spend time thinking about how we sometimes do things that make God sad, and hurt the people around us.
Those things, called SIN, can make it hard to love people, and can cause great sadness and pain. But God loves us so much that He decided to do something to take away the sin and the pain and the hurt. He decided to come to earth and become a person like you and me, so that He could live with us, and show us how to love each other, the same way that He loves each of us!
It wasn’t easy – as a matter of fact, Jesus finally had to die on a cross so that our sins could be forgiven. But He loves us so much, He was willing to go through all the pain and even death, so that He could come back to life, and we could have the promise of new life with Him both now, and forever in heaven.
Some of the hardest things that Jesus had to do happened in the seven days before Easter – we call those days, “Holy Week”. Beginning with Palm Sunday, Christians around the world share the story of God’s love in the events that led up to His suffering, death, and resurrection.
The stations at “Journey with Jesus” all have items that will help you use your senses to think about what Jesus did for us all. So enjoy your time looking, listening, tasting, touching, and seeing what Jesus did for you, to show you how much He loves you, and how much He wants you to be a part of His family – now and forever!
