AFTER EASTER WHAT?
On Easter Sunday, did you feel a little
more exhilarated as you listened to the
choir sing "Christ the Lord is Risen, Today?"
Did your heart race a little faster and did
thoughts of thanksgiving and praise raise
a lump in your throat as your pastor heralded
the dawning of a new day, a new life and a
new way? Ours certainly did.
So, what happens next? And regardless of
what does happen next, won't any event
in our lives be anticlimatic?
It would be, if Jesus had wanted to keep
all the honor, power and glory to himself.
But, he did not, and would not. For he
bore witness that he desired us to become
"joint heirs with Him and His Father. He
also declared, "Thou shalt see greater
things than these." (John 1:50)
Triumphant living does not culminate with
the events and of Easter. The resurrection
of Jesus was not the end of the story, but
was the beginning.
