Who Loves Me?

Bongo next to a cross on the ground made of rocksA few days ago I found a heart on my trails.

I’m sure one of my girlfriends left it for me, but she still hasn’t shown her furry face.

And then you know what happened?

The heart disappeared.

Now I’ll never find out which girlfriend it was.

This is so sad.


But something new appeared where that heart had been.

And even though I might never find out which girlfriend loves me – I know exactly who loves me now.

Cross on the ground made of rocks

Jesus loves me!

Woo woo!

It’s Not Over Yet

Jesus Crucifixion

Photo taken by Kabir Bakie at the Cincinnati Zoo

Hey person, I’ve been worried all week about what’s going to happen to Jesus.

You ended the story too soon.

They arrested Him, but I don’t know what happened after that.

He didn’t do anything wrong.

They let Him go, didn’t they?


They didn’t!

Those garbaldy goo good for nothing people that arrested Him. I’ll give them what for.

Okay, I’ll listen.


Jesus was put on trial and even though Pilate, the Roman governor, didn’t find anything he’d done wrong the Jews wanted Him crucified.

So Pilate finally agreed and sent Jesus to be crucified.


I’m giving Pilate what for too!

I am listening.


Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with Jesus to be executed.

When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified Him, along with the criminals – one on His right, the other on His left. Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”


I don’t get it. They just nailed Jesus to a cross and He wants to forgive them?

I’m gonna give them all what for.

I’m listening. I’m listening.


And they divided up Jesus’ clothes by casting lots.


It’s too bad I don’t wear clothes, or I’d give Him some of mine.


The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at Him. They said, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is the Christ of God, the Chosen One.”


Those rulers better watch it. If Jesus doesn’t give them what for I sure will.


The soldiers also came up and mocked Him. They offered him wine vinegar and said “If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.”

There was a written notice above Him, which read: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.


How come those people don’t believe what they’re reading?

They should be worshipping The King of the Jews.


One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at Him: “Aren’t you the Christ? Save yourself and us!”

But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.


I don’t get it. The only man who is making any sense is hanging on a cross along with Jesus.


Then the man said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”


I bet that upset all the people who were giving Jesus a bad time.

I’m listening.


It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining.


That was what time?

The middle of the day?


And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When He had said this He breathed His last.



That’s not how the story’s supposed to end.

It doesn’t end there?

Okay, I’m listening.


The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.”


That’s it!?

That’s the end?

Oh. It’s not over yet?

What do you mean, I have to wait till next Sunday to hear the rest of the story?

This is gonna be a long week.

Take up your Cross

English: Christ Handing the Keys to St. Peter ...

English: Christ Handing the Keys to St. Peter by Pietro Perugino (1481-82) Fresco, 335 x 550 cm Cappella Sistina, Vatican. Ελληνικά: Λεπτομέρεια από την νωπογραφία του Πιέτρο Περουτζίνο, Ο Χριστός Παραδίδει τα Κλειδιά στον Πέτρο, 335 x 600 cm, Καπέλα Σιξτίνα, Πόλη του Βατικανού. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Hey person, I don’t know if I like this next Bible story. Can’t you just tell another one about swimming – or fishing?

Okay, I’ll listen to the story. But if there’s no fish in it I want some treats when you’re finished.


Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi and he asked his disciples, “Who do people say I am?”


I know who he is. He’s the guy who makes lots of fish appear.

Yes, I’m listening.


The disciples replied to Jesus, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

“But what about you?” Jesus asked. “Who do you say I am?”

Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”


God must really love us to send His Son to give us lots of fish.

I am listening, but don’t you think that was a really important observation I just made?


Jesus told Peter he was blessed because it was the Father in heaven who revealed to him who Jesus is, and He told His disciples not to tell anyone that He is the Christ.

Then He began to explain to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and teachers of the law, and that He must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.


Wouldn’t the disciples protect Jesus?


Peter had that idea and he began to rebuke Jesus saying, “Never, Lord. This shall never happen to you!”


I bet Jesus felt better after that.


This is what Jesus said to Peter. “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.”


I bet Peter tucked his tail between his legs after that.


Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?”


If I have to deny myself to follow Jesus, does that mean I have to give up treats?
