Idea List: Always Remember Him


Always Remember Him

The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the most important event in all of history. Yet how many are more excited about what the Easter Bunny brings on Easter morning than about what the Savior brought on that first Easter?

“On this Easter eve, may our thoughts turn to Him who atoned for our sins, who showed us the way to live, how to pray, and who demonstrated by His own actions how we might do so” (Thomas S. Monson, “Pathways to Perfection,” Ensign, May 2002).

The following ideas from the Chula Vista California Stake’s sophomore seminary class can help you remember the Savior this Easter.

  • Pray for a better understanding of how His Atonement affects you.

  • Sing hymns about the Lord.

  • Spend family time learning about the Savior and His life.

  • Write in your journal about what He has done for you.

  • Try harder to act more like the Lord. Show more compassion. Be more forgiving.

  • Read about the first Easter morning in Matthew 28 [Matt. 28], Mark 16, Luke 24, and John 20.

  • Carry a picture of the Savior with you.

  • Study scriptures about Jesus Christ and the Resurrection.

  • Write your scripture mastery references on Easter eggs and go on a “scripture egg” hunt.

  • Create a “Week before Easter” calendar, with scripture references for each day about what the Savior did during His last week.

  • Write your own Easter song or poem, and share it with others.

  • Read The Living Christ: The Testimony of the Apostles (Ensign, Apr. 2000, 2).

  • Watch the video Special Witnesses of Christ or The Lamb of God.
