lesson: christ�s death and resurrection
luke 24:6 ...he is not here. he is risen!!!
one day billy bunny was telling his friend, freddy frog, the story of jesus� resurrection. freddy frog listened very carefully as billy told him that jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins and they put him in a tomb. �after three days, he rose from the dead,� billy continued.
freddy asked, �how did they know he rose from the dead?�
�because he talked to one of the nice ladies who came to the tomb to put some sweet perfume on his body,� billy replied. �he also walked and spoke with two friends on the road to emmaus. and he even went to visit the disciples at someone�s house.�
freddy frog sat quietly as billy continued, �he stayed a little while with his friends and then he rose up in the air and went to heaven.�
�does that mean he is up in heaven now?� asked freddy frog.
�yes, he is but he is also living in the hearts of everyone who loves him.�
freddy thought for a moment and said �i�m glad jesus is living in my heart. now i know whenever i need him, he is always close by.�
