For many Americans, Easter is one of the only times that church is an obligation or even a thought. For those of us that go to church on a regular basis, Easter is a high point of the year. We mourn with Jesus’ death and celebrate the resurrection and defeat of death and sin.
But now, it’s a few weeks later and those Easter highs have worn off. The sugar-highs have worn off and family has gone back home. Easter seems like a distant memory. The real world has kicked back in and now we feel like we are on a spiritual low.
So what do we do now?
We remember these 4 facts.
This after-Easter season, be reminded the tomb is still empty, Jesus is an everyday God, We have a mission, and Easter is the beginning, not the end.
“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” –John 14:12-14
