What would you say if your girl asked this one day: “Mom, what if none of the Easter story is true? What if Jesus is still in the grave?”
Does she know what the resurrection means for Christians? Not only that Christ rose one day a long time ago, but that He STILL lives. 1 Corinthians 15 says that if Christ did NOT rise from the dead, then Christians are the most pitiful people in the world. The truth is, “the greatest gift of Easter is hope.” Hope gives us a way forward!
Your girl can walk confidently because her Savior is not bound by sin and death. So, she is not bound by the crushing weight of being good enough on her own. Christ is infinitely good, and having HIS hope means she can conquer sin in her daily walk.
