Bible Story: Jesus is Alive | Matthew 26:20-30, 27:1-2, 28:1-2
Main Point: I can follow Jesus because He is my friend forever!
Memory Verse: ‘Come and follow me,’ Jesus said. Matthew 4:19
We can celebrate because Jesus is alive and can be our friend forever! God sent Jesus to earth to save us from our sins. But Jesus didn’t stay dead. After being dead for three days, Jesus rose again and now lives in Heaven. Jesus is alive and we can follow Him because He showed us how to live and love others.
