A few days ago, I spied my old friend Bob vigorously pedaling a bike at our neighborhood gym and staring down at a blood pressure monitor on his finger.

Hebrews 10:19-25

Hebrews 10 commands Christians to “hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23). But do you know what command follows it, written before the ink had dried on the first? “And let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds” (10:24).

Mon - Fri 9pm.

Sin has become a barrier to fellowship with Him. It has become a barrier to experience of Him and to relationship with Him. And the foundation for everything else God has to give us is the fact that He first of all forgives us.

"Mom, may I go hike the nature trails with Jon?" Max asked.

"Sure," Mom agreed. "Maybe you'll be able to tell him about Jesus again."

"Maybe," Max replied. "He's a good kid, Mom, but he thinks it doesn't matter much what you believe as long as you live right and do good."

"That's too bad," said Mom. "Nobody's goodness is good enough to enter into God's presence. There's only one way to God, and that's through His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus is called the door, you know--not a door, but the door."

"Yeah," said Max, "but Jon doesn't believe that. I'll try to tell him again."

Max went to meet Jon, and the boys rode their bikes to the state park where there were several nature trails. They parked the bikes in the parking lot, went through the entrance gate, and began their hike.

When they reached the top of a hill, the boys flopped to the ground to rest. "Look! I can see the parking lot." Jon pointed down the hill. "Let's cut through the woods and go down right here. That will get us to our bikes much quicker."

"But there's only one gate into the park," said Max. "We'll have to use it."

"Says who? Let's go," insisted Jon. He started down, and Max followed. They made good progress, but when they reached the bottom of the hill, a high, chain-link fence separated them from the parking lot. "I forgot about this fence!" said Jon.

"I told you we had to go through the gate," said Max. "You didn't believe me, but that didn't change the fact. Let's get back to the path."

"Yeah, well, if I had made this park, I'd have made more places to get in and out," grumbled Jon.

"But you didn't make the park," replied Max.

"Let's follow the fence to the gate," suggestedJon. "That way might be shorter."

"We tried enough shortcuts," said Max, turning to go. Jon frowned but didn't argue. "Hey, Jon!"Max exclaimed. "Remember I told you that there's only one door to get into heaven? That's like there's only one gate into the park."

Jon shook his head. "You're going to preach to me about Jesus again, aren't you? Forget it!'"

"Okay," said Max, "but remember--not believing facts doesn't change them."

How About You?
Are you convinced that Jesus is the only way to heaven? God's Word says there is no other way, except through Him. Many people refuse to believe this truth, but that does not change the fact. If you want eternal life, you must choose God's way and receive Jesus as your personal Savior. He is the only door to heaven. (See the ABCs of Salvation at the right.)

Today's Key Verse:
(Jesus said) I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved. (John 10:9)

Today's Key Thought:
Jesus is the way to heaven

Episode Summary:

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to meet Jesus? Or to be in Jerusalem the very week Jesus was crucified and raised from the dead? You’re invited to explore the miracle of Easter on this week’s Kids Corner.

Listen to this week's episode


Verse: Matthew 28:6

He is not here; he is risen, just as he said.

What if someone said to you, “Oh, I know all about Easter.  It’s Easter baskets and chocolate bunnies and coloring eggs.”  What would you say?  Do you know how to talk about the real miracle of Easter?  If you’re not sure what you would say, here’s some help.

The Easter story starts with God and how God created us.  God gives us each value and purpose; he wants to us to know him personally.  But when we sin, we can’t have a personal relationship with God.  What is sin?  Sin is anything (thoughts, actions, words, attitudes) that turns us away from God.  What is the result of sin?  Sin separates us from God—eternally, which means even after we die.

Some people respond to this separation from God by denying there is a God or by doing lots of good works or by focusing on jobs or money or relationships with other people.  None of these will satisfy our deepest hunger to be with God. What can we do about our sin?

Jesus is the only one who can bridge the gap between us and God.  He paid the price for our sins when he died on the cross on Good Friday, but he didn’t remain dead.  Jesus rose from the dead and conquered Satan and sin once and for all on Easter Sunday!  So how can we have a personal relationship with Jesus?  First, admit we are sinners and are separated from God by our own sins.  Then believe that Jesus is our Savior—he promises to forgive our sin.  Trust Jesus from now on to direct our lives to live for him, in him, and with him.

That’s the real meaning of Easter—Jesus coming to earth to be one of us and to save us!  Jesus is the only meaning of Easter!  This year, if someone asks you about Easter and candy, be ready to talk about Jesus!  He’s the reason we celebrate!

Discussion Guide:

Do you know how the early Christians greeted each other? They said, "He is risen. He is risen indeed." Having watched Jesus die on the cross and having seen him buried in a tomb, the fact that Jesus had risen from that grave was such a stunning event that it became their signature whenever they met. Jesus' resurrection was a dramatic, confirming revelation that Jesus truly was the Son of God.

We pray that this retelling of the Easter story will help you to experience the amazing truth that "He is risen, He is risen indeed." And, that knowing this will give energy and urgency to your witness and confident hope for your future.
