Depending on your amount of church over the weekend, you might feel a little “churched” out. I spoke to some recently who were in church for services Thursday through Sunday, sometimes at multiple services per day. If you went all out, beginning with Ash Wednesday, sacrificing something more potent than chocolate during Lent, and worshiped on all of the Holy Days just before Easter, the build-up was palpable.
But Easter isn’t the end. It’s the beginning.
When Jesus was dying on the cross and exclaimed, “It is finished,” he wasn’t talking about the entire story. The story isn’t over…it’s being lived out even today.
Don’t view Easter as a landing; view it as a fresh wind that takes us to new heights. Today is the first day of a lived-out Easter. Where is God calling you to go? Who is God calling you to be?
