Have a blessed Easter! Isn’t it wonderful to walk in newness of life?!
Roy Orbison’s lyrics come to mind as I ask the Lord what He has to say this morning. I hear Roy singing “It’s Over!” By the time you read this, Easter will be over. The excitement, preparation, festivities and enjoyment is past. All we have left is leftover food and wilting flowers. A few Easter eggs may be lost in the yard and hopefully they will be taken away by rodents or birds. There’s always a letdown after the party is over.
But is it really over? Is Easter over for good? Is there nothing left to celebrate beyond the natural events of the day? I think not! God speaks to my heart and He says Rejoice in Me – for I AM Risen and I will remain alive! For you who call upon My Name you can live in Resurrection power and promise! There is more to the Holiness of My Life than just the holiday.
Oh beloved, don’t mourn what was. Rejoice in what is! Don’t let the enemy tell you it’s over! Don’t cry as though you’d lost the love of your life. For He is Your King and Love and Protector. Through Christ, you have access to everything you need for Life and Godliness. You are a strong evangelistic seeker and giver of Life! Easter is just a holiday, but the Resurrection can be celebrated daily for the rest of your life!
God loves you and He’s for you. That is the Seal of the Savior that It’s Never Over!
According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter 1:3
For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. Romans 6:4
