Today in Bible class, Miss Lamson asked her 5th and 6th grade students, “What does Jesus’ sacrifice mean to you?”

Within two minutes, they had these answers. May your hearts be encouraged as you read them.

“It means that I don’t have to live in fear and death and it also means that my sins are forgiven and I can live an eternal life with Him in heaven.”

“It means He is always there for us and He will never leave us. Some people are afraid of things and they don’t trust Him, but He does everything for a reason and everyone needs to know that.” 

 swirl

“It means a lot to me that He died on the cross for our sins so that we could be saved! Did He have to do that? NO! He did it because He loves us even though we are not perfect.”

 swirl

“It means to me I am still a sinner today, but when I sin and ask God for forgiveness He forgives me. I love Jesus!”  

 swirl

“To me it means freedom and forgiveness of my sins and of everybody else’s. It also means that we can go to heaven and live eternally with God if we choose to believe in Him.”

 swirl

“It means that because of His death on a cross we might have life in heaven with Jesus. I can go and know that in my heart Jesus has forgiven me and will never forsake me. He has made me whole.” 

 swirl

“What Jesus’ sacrifice means to me is that He loves us and He wants to be with us on earth and in heaven. The action of the crucifixion allows us now to be with Jesus in heaven. What is also means to me is that God/Jesus didn’t want us to have eternal death, but eternal life with Him.”

 swirl

“Jesus’s sacrifice means He loves me and He would always do the right thing for me. He would even die for me He loves me so much.” 

 swirl

“It means to me that I know He loves and cares for me and everyone else to be able to make the ultimate sacrifice for our sins to be washed away from our hearts. I am truly thankful to have God love us so much.”

 swirl

“Jesus’ sacrifice means to me that my sins are forgiven and that Jesus is God and He loves me so much that He died for me and is coming back to take all believers He died for home.” 

 swirl

“It means that He loves me so much and that He is willing to do anything for me and even if you are the top wanted suspect in the world you are still accepted into His family. Jesus took my place on the cross. I should be on the cross suffering and being beaten, but He loves me so much He took my place.”

 swirl

“What it means to me is I know that He loves us, He died for us, He doesn’t care what people think of Him. He died for all of us, even the poor, the bad, the sick, the rich, and all Christians. That’s what I think about Jesus’ sacrifice.”

 swirl

“It means that we are able to be forgiven and that we can go to heaven and that there is no pain and we can live forever in God’s Holy place and we can see our friends in heaven all because of Jesus Christ, our Father.”

 swirl

“It means so much that He came here and died on the cross for us! He cares about us that He went through all that pain and suffering. He gave His life for us, that is amazing and He is perfect.”

 swirl

“It means that without Him, we would be living bad worthless lives. He died so it would have a meaning. It meant that we could go to Heaven.”

 swirl

“It means a lot, it means that He loved me so much He died for me. He gave His life just so I could have mine. Jesus’ sacrifice means so much more than just a man dying, this man was Jesus and He is perfect and never sinned just for us. Jesus is God’s one and only Son and He still decided to die for us.”

 swirl

“Jesus’ sacrifice means to me that Jesus came to earth and suffered as a human and died on a cross to save us from Satan and hell.”

 swirl

“Jesus’ sacrifice means a lot to me. He gave us a choice and I have chosen to follow God. He is always with me. But by Jesus dying on the cross He has now given me another choice, when I sin do I want to live my life with that sin or do I want to be forgiven by Him? Because of His sacrifice He has given me many chances to live a life with Him. Though I make mistakes, He still loves and forgives me.”
