Easter 2014 is over. The turkey was devoured by my family, the hymns and anthems were sung by my church family, scriptures were read, there was joy and celebration, sunshine and flowers. The tomb was empty and The Lord is risen!
And now, it’s just back to regular life. At least, sometimes it can feel that way. But Easter, just like Christmas, was never meant to be kept to a day -or even a few days – of celebration. Easter, like Christmas, is meant to be kept the whole year through. We should wake each morning knowing that the tomb is empty, that our Lord is risen, that death has lost it’s sting and the bonds of sin are broken.
We are meant to dwell, to abide, to linger in these high and holy places. We are meant to live each day in celebration of eternal life , thankful for all that God has done for us through Jesus Christ.
So don’t rush away, friends. Don’t get too busy with other things, with the schedule and the to-do list and the hustley-bustley pace of your week.
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
John 15:7 NKJV
