Jesus was born in a town called Bethlehem, near Jerusalem. That is where he was welcomed with His apostles. People cheered and covered his way with garments and palm leaves.
Well, if there was someone new you would just give them a warm welcome and start to make friends, instead of putting garments and palm leaves in front of them to walk on. But Jesus, was very special. A special man, out of any men. Jesus did Miracles, the first one was at the Wedding of Cana. This can’t ever be done. He turned water into wine!
Chief priests and other priests didn’t like Jesus. On the day He went in to the temple (His Father’s House), People were selling sacrifices at very high prices. He was not very happy and shouted. “This is supposed to be my Father’s house, How dare you cheat the people like this!” people were shocked. With his anger Jesus started to turn over all the tables, and set all the creatures free.
This is when Judas came in, he asked for 30 pieces of silver (Which is quite a lot) to betray Jesus. When Jesus was at the Passover meal with his friends He sent Judas away to let him do what he was going to do. After that he told Simon whom Jesus called Peter (The Rock), that he would say three times that he did not know Jesus, then the crock would crow and Jesus would be taken to Pontius Pilate. That’s exactly what happened. The crowd told Pilate to crucify Jesus and set Barabbas free. So it was, Jesus was crucified on the cross for us and our sins to behave and follow the footsteps of Jesus.
So that’s how Jesus lived. His love is one of a kind and is the strongest nobody can take it from Him. There were 12 disciples but it became eleven because Judas betrayed Him. Also after the Passover, Jesus and his friends Peter, James and John followed Jesus into the Garden of Gethsemane that is where Jesus was arrested.
So imagine you’ve got 12 friends and one of them betray you. They get some advice on how to sell you. How would you feel? But that person hasn’t told you yet, and you already know. How could this be? How could you live to be like Jesus in your life? How can you help in any way even if it’s a little tiny job? You can heal the blind and wake up the dead. But your friend still betrays you and they don’t care. Maybe you’ve had a little fight, but have you said sorry? It is really hard to say that word but it can easily make things better.
How can you make life better? Well, there are many different ways like technology, studies, and physics and so on. So you get it different words and ways.
Fundraising for Charities.
You could raise money for charities. Through fun activities and bring at least one pound maximum. So like a whole school of 360 children and they all bring a pound for the activities then it will be £360 in total already! These are easy simple ways or you could do your own sales or fundraising activities. Like on sport relief. In our school we had to run 1 mile around the field different ways 6 times. Running, skipping, hop hop hop star jump, conga, high knees and the wheel barrow. That is what year 4 did. They do lots of fundraising and have a partner school in Zambia called Haven of Hope. We raised lots of money for them to build their new school and it’s almost finished.
Well, if you think about it as if you have no home, no food, no money and no proper school to go to how would you feel? That is why it’s better to help others in life, so I could easily predict that over here in Britain we’re lucky. The reason why we’re lucky is because we’ve got Ipads, Phones, Tablets, Tvs, Computers, Laptops, Schools to help children study in and all those useful things we can use to help us in life. But the other children, who aren’t as lucky as us don’t have all this technology to use and help them with their studies. Some children don’t even have parents or somewhere to live in.
If you know about the seven Corporal works of Mercy, well, in life you should use them too. Feed the Hungry, Give drinks to the thirsty, clothe the naked, Shelter the homeless, Visit the imprisoned, Visit the sick and bury the dead. They are all the Corporal works of Mercy, so in your life at least once do one of these Corporal works of Mercy. Also you could come closer to God if do one of these daily all the time in your life. One thing you should never do is give up. When you’re going to do something to help others and then after a while you’ve thought about it and you’re like Oh I don’t want to do it anymore then what’s the point? Because you know, what if you don’t give up and carry on then you’re believing in yourself which is good. Also you might end up with something really good which might surprise you. So never give up and show the love of Jesus and God to everybody in the world.
This Easter, let us be loving to each other and think about what Jesus did for us to forgive all of our sins. Thank you for reading this. I hope you enjoy your Holy Week.
A very happy Easter to you all!
