Cross of Christ Coloring Page

Jesus Died for Us

With Easter right around the corner, I thought you might enjoy the Cross of Christ coloring page I designed for you this week. It features one of my all-time favorite verses, Romans 5:8. “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Ideas for using these coloring pages:

  • If your younger children have a hard time sitting still through church, let them color these Scriptures during the Sunday sermon (older kids might rather take notes with this printable)
  • My children and I enjoy coloring these sheets together while my husband reads aloud to us in the evening. (For a special treat, I let them use my Prismacolor pencils.)
  • I give them to my children during school time so they can color at the table while I work with their older siblings, and vice versa. (Since each of them has their own devotional journal, I’ll sometimes just assign pages out of that for them to fill in or color — that way, they get some handwriting practice, too!)
  • I do one of several things with the pages once they’ve finished coloring them (and none of them wind up on our refrigerator): Sometimes we send them in letters to penpals. I might glue one into a child’s scrapbook or tack it on his bulletin board. Our littlest guys have even been known to frame them as a creative arts entry for the State Fair — there’s nothing like winning a ribbon and cash premium to motivate them to do their best job coloring future pages!

  1. I am looking for coloring pages for the I am series. Especially I am the sheep gate John 10:7. Thank you so much for your help.

    1. Hi, Kim.

      I’ll try to publish what I’ve come up with on my blog soon, but in the meantime, I have sent you one directly so you won’t have to wait until I get around to doing so. Hope that helps!

        1. You’re welcome, Kim. Your request inspired me, so I made one for all seven of Jesus’ “I AM” statements. Just sent them to you privately, but will publish on the site in coming weeks.

  2. Thank you for the beautiful colouring page. An inspiring piece of art on my journey to a deeper connection with my Creator.

  3. Thank you for the beautiful printable. I’ve decided to have to our kids each color one to take to neighbors with a special treat during Easter week. Our neighbors are accustomed to us bringing goodies & the good news of the Savior’s birth during Christmas but we should be sharing the “risen” news with neighbors too!
    **Will you be speaking at the GHC in Fort Worth this week?

    1. What a great idea, Melissa. I love it! Thanks for sharing. I’ll miss you in Fort Worth this year. I normally don’t do many conferences. I spoke at last year’s GHC as a special favor to a friend who needed representation there, but the dates conflicted with the surprise party she was throwing for her husband’s 50th birthday, so she asked me to fill in. It was lots of fun, but not something I plan to do very often during this season of my life. 🙂
