Good Friday

Good Friday Greetings!

Here is what we did today to recognize the importance of this day for those of us who love Jesus.

We made a lamb cake.

"The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!"  John 1:29

I bought this 2 piece lamb-shaped mold many years ago before I had children - probably at a yard sale!

One of my favorite things to do is make a lamb cake each Easter with my daughters.

Iced with white frosting and covered with coconut. Yum!

This year we also made Resurrection Rolls. I saw the idea on Pinterest. This is a great visual way to teach kids about Jesus's body rising from the dead.

1 tube of Crescent Rolls
Large marshmallows
Melted butter
Cinnamon Sugar

Take a marshmallow and roll it in the melted butter and then the cinnamon sugar to represent Jesus' body being treated with scented oils and spices.

"The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes." Luke 24:55

Roll the marshmallow up in a crescent roll. The crescent roll symbolizes the linen cloth that Jesus' body was wrapped in.

"Now there was a man names Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man,...he asked for Jesus' body. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock"  Luke 24:50-53

Bake the rolls according to the time and temperature on the package. When they come out of the oven the marshmallow is gone! - Just like Jesus' body. 
The tomb is empty - so is the roll.

"On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus." Luke 24: 1-2

They are delicious hot from the oven.

Wishing you a blessed weekend were we celebrate the death and resurrection of our Savior.

"Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:6-8

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8,9
