The Good News of Easter

Good news Jesus was born
Good news He died on the cross
Good news He rose again
Good news He's coming back soon” Song by Sarah Moore

Easter is a time of GOOD NEWS: With Easter we celebrate the good news that Jesus was born, that Jesus died on the cross, that He rose again and that He is coming back soon.
Martin Luther said: “Live as if Jesus died yesterday, rose this morning, and is coming back tomorrow”!

My prayer is that God's children will experience the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel every day, that this Easter will be a wonderful Christ Festival to us all and that we will be GOOD NEWS to other people!
We hear so much bad news, that everyone longs for GOOD NEWS!!

Easter greeting: “The Lord has risen! He has risen indeed!!”

Charles Spurgeon said: “We Christians do not believe that Jesus Christ was the only one that ever rose from the dead. We believe that every death-bed is a resurrection; that from every grave the stone is rolled away.”

Child Evangelism Fellowship has a Good News Song:
Good news, good news Christ died for me
Good news, good news if I believe
Good news, good news I'm saved eternally
That's wonderful EXTRA good news.”

Make sure that you believe in Jesus Christ as your Saviour. How?
A. Admit that you are a sinner and that you need a Saviour. - Rom. 3:23
B. Believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you. Joh. 3:16
C. Commit yourself to the Lord and ask Him to forgive your sins and make you His child. - Joh. 1:12

Eight Characteristics of a good T E A C H E R

Deut. 6:5-7:  "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength.  And these words which I command you today, shall be in your heart.  You shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up."

To be a TEACHER to your children, you need to know the Word of God yourself, before you start to teach the Word of God.  You need to know the Master Teacher, Jesus Christ, as your Saviour!

According to the Child Evangelism Fellowship Resource Edition of the Bible you need 8 characteristics to be a good teacher:

E - Enduring -  Persevere when things are difficult
R - Ready - Be prepared for your tasks as parent and teacher and sit at the feet of your Heavenly Father to get your wisdom from Him by Reading the Word and meditate on it day and night (Ps. 1)
