How is your family preparing for Easter?
Through this short and sweet devotional (especially helpful if you’re teaching little ones with short attention spans), Scott James brings to light the many things that Christ’s life and resurrection means for us not only through the season of Lent, but all year long.
These weekly devotions, which are designed for both family and individual use, are timeless and moving reminders of the miracle of Jesus’ life, ministry, death, and resurrection. The Risen One is a perfect (and doable!) gift for any growing family or beloved friend who needs meaningful and biblical reminders of all Jesus is for them—and how much God loves them—during the busy and the bustle of the Easter season, setting him back in the center of it all.
Whether used as a follow-up to The Expected One, or used on its own, The Risen One is a deeply encouraging devotional helping each of us experience all that Jesus is for us in the Easter story.
the heart behind The Risen One
“This book will give you a glimpse of the path Jesus walked as He made His way to the cross. The weekly devotionals pick up just after the arrival of the long-expected Savior, following Him as He reveals the good news of His kingdom, prepares Himself and His disciples for the sacrifice ahead, endures the agony of the cross, and triumphantly emerges from the grave in victory. Then, we’ll see the Risen One unleash His people to testify in His name through the power of the Holy Spirit. You may recognize these themes as Christmastide, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost—seasons of the church calendar designed to guide us through the progression of God’s unfolding plan of salvation.
The Risen One consists of twelve family-friendly weekly devotionals. Though the dates will change from year to year, if you use Easter Sunday as an anchor point and start this book ten weeks before, these devotionals will guide your family through the themes of Jesus’ pathway to the cross in the months leading up to Easter, loosely coinciding with the seasons of the church calendar. Each week includes a key passage of Scripture, a brief explanation to help you follow along, discussion questions (and suggested answers) to help you connect with kids, an additional question to help you dig a little deeper, and a suggested prayer point based on the theme of the week. There are also suggested passages for daily readings, which will help round out the themes of each week’s devotional. Taken together, the weekly devotionals and daily readings form a three-month reading plan that will be sure to enrich your Easter celebration.” – Scott James
