How can you teach your children that Jesus willingly took our place as the punishment for our sins?

The prophet Isaiah predicted that Jesus would take the punishment for our sin. With this in mind, imagine or role-play a courtroom setting. Pretend your child is the defendant accused of a crime. The judge glares down from the bench, pounds the gavel and declares, "Guilty as charged!"

As your child is being "sentenced" to life in prison, Jesus stands up and says, "Take Me instead." The judge demands to know why Jesus should be punished. After all, He's done nothing wrong. Jesus replies, "I love her, and I want to take her place." Discuss Jesus' willingness to suffer our punishment in order to set us free.

Isaiah 53:5          

Mark 15:16-20
