Easter 2C

Day: Easter 2C

Lectionary Passage: John 20:19-31

Scripture Focus: John 20:22

Object: None

One of my favorite superheroes of all time is Superman. He has all kinds of amazing powers, like superhuman strength, flying, and x-ray vision. But the one that always catches my attention is Superman’s super breath. Superman has the ability to inhale and exhale huge volumes of air with great force, so he can put out fires and move heavy objects like cars. He can also freeze stuff with his breath!

As cool as Superman’s breath is, it still isn’t as powerful as Jesus’ breath. You see, in our story today, Jesus finds the disciples hiding out in a house. After Jesus greets them, he does something really strange: He breathes on them. And when he does, the Holy Spirit comes! That’s how powerful Jesus’ breath is! It gives us the Holy Spirit. And with the Holy Spirit we can do amazing things like pray to God in Heaven. Now, that’s some powerful breath Jesus’ got.

Let’s pray: God, thank you for sending Jesus who breathed into us the power of the Holy Spirit so that we can do amazing things!
