Easter Every Day
Print E-mail
Spring. It’s that magical time of year when grass and trees become lush and green. Flowers peek up out of the earth and beautify our yards. Birds serenade your morning wake-up routines and get you going with a song in your heart. It isn’t long before you start planning for warm weather activities and some time away from homeschool studies.

Spring is a time of new beginnings for our surroundings and reminds us of the life God has given us, as well as the eternal life He offers to us through His Son, Jesus Christ. Easter is one of the most beloved days for the Christian. Unlike spring, though, Christians don’t have to wait for a once a year event to enjoy and appreciate the value of Easter.

Using homeschooling materials that focus on a biblical worldview makes the redemptive story of Easter an everyday lesson. Learning that God made man in His image (Genesis 1:26-27), and that man’s sinful choices have created a broken relationship with God his surroundings, and others (Genesis 3:14-24), helps children to see the need for redemption. Understanding that God gave man a job to do by taking dominion (Genesis 1:28) of his resources to glorify God, care for his family, and to show love for his neighbor helps a child to see that even in brokenness, we have been designed for God’s purposes and He equips us to follow that plan. But because of our brokenness, we need a Savior (Romans 3). We cannot glorify God or show true love to our neighbors if we do not trust the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, who bore our sins in order to bring us to a right relationship with God (Col. 1:20, 3:10,23-24). Once we know who we are (made in God’s image, created for a purpose, in need of a Savior, and redeemed), we are able to experience the redemptive life of loving and serving the way.

This then is the basis for all lesson plans written by BJU Press authors. From learning to spell and punctuate correctly to applying mathematical and scientific applications, all lessons are written with the intention of teaching children to use their academic skills as their tools in God’s mission field of this broken world. Here they use their skills to be salt and light (Matthew 5:16, Mark 12:30-31) to this world that desperately needs Him by redeeming the time, resources, and God’s mission for us because of God’s redemption in or lives. One day He will redeem us physically and give us dominion on a new earth (Rev. 21); but until then, we have work to do. Those academic subjects are more than lessons to complete if you are teaching with a biblical worldview. They are pictures of Easter- every day.

How do the homeschooling materials you use teach your children to be salt and light in this broken world?
