Yes, It's Easter. Yes, the season lasts for fifty days, not just for one Sunday. Yes, we continue to celebrate the risen Lord and all the promises of life over death that come with Him.
However, has anything else risen? Anything else been resurrected in you?
Has your understanding of just how much God loves you been resurrected? Have you experienced a rise in gratitude for God's grace and blessings in your life or in the life of someone you love? How about a rise in your desire to make a difference, to leave a mark, to add something of yourself to the richness of God's kingdom?
Yes, we celebrate that too. Now that's Easter!!
