What’s It All About?
This series of articles are meant to challenge you dear youth, to look away from the secular, the regular, and the traditional you may have grown up with and, as you read the articles in this magazine, meditate on what Jesus did for you while on earth, especially in the days leading to His crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. I hope that your hearts will be filled with hope as you look forward to the coming of the King in glory.
The Origin of Easter
God has ordained the children of Israel to celebrate their deliverance from Egypt by their participation in the feast of the passover. It was supposed to raise questions in the minds of the young so the parents would not neglect sharing the story of their salvation from the angel of death. How did this turn easter? Learn about it in this article.
Behold the Lamb of God!
The expression used by John the Baptist as he saw Jesus descend into the Jordan River has been sounding in churches and in believers’ homes for ages. We hope it will resound in your heart as you read in this article how the hope of a coming deliverer motivated the faithful children of God to go as far as making the ultimate sacrifice.
As the hour of His crucifixion was nearing, the Son of God became sorrowful at the thought of His separation from the Father. The climax of His sufferings was just about to be complete when He prayed, if it were possible, for “this cup” to pass from Him. In this article, you’ll understand why Jesus prayed that prayer.
It was on the cross of calvary where law and grace were reconciled. It was when Jesus pronounced the words “it is finished” that the power of darkness was overcome by darkness and death was overcome by death. In the sacrifice of our Lord, victory was won on our behalf and we can freely sing: “There is power in the blood of the Lamb”.
An Old Story Made New
The resurrection of Jesus the third day, as He had promised, brought much joy into the hearts of the discouraged disciples. Mary Magdalene was crying when “Rabboni” revealed His identity. Her tears turned into excitement and she ran to share the good news with others.. May this article fill you with hope in a hopeless world and make a difference in your life as the resurrection of Jesus made in the life of His disciples.
The Lamb’s Return As King
He came as a lamb, to take away the sins of the world. He’ll return as King to take us to a sinless home where “there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying”. This is what I’ve been looking forward to and I know you did too. This article will help you refocus on what’s important in the process of preparation for “that great day”.
He Is Not Here
Words of hope in a beautiful poem. Please, enjoy it as you meditate on the history contained in these verses and look forward to the day of our reunion with the faithful of past generations.
