The Easter cantatas, dramas and musicals have all been sung and performed.
Pictures of everyone dressed up in their Easter best have been taken and posted on Facebook for family and friends to enjoy!
All the Easter eggs have been hunted and found. Hopefully they have been found, especially if you hid REAL eggs!
I'm sure all the yummy chocolate bunnies, sugary peeps and jelly beans have been consumed by now. Probably entirely gone by Easter night!
The pretty new Easter dresses, hats, suits and shoes are all put back in the closet and are now considered just another regular Sunday outfit since they made their Easter debut!
Easter services have taken place, and Lord willing, MANY trusted Christ as their personal Saviour as they heard of Jesus' death, burial and resurrection.
Easter dinner was delicious and now maybe you are feasting on the left overs, if there are any!
So now what?
Do we just wait for next Easter to come around so we get to do it all over again?
While the "traditions" of Easter may be over, I for one, am so very thankful that my Saviour is still risen today and will be tomorrow, the next day, the following day, next Easter, forever and ALWAYS.
For all eternity!
We don't need
until next Easter
to celebrate Him!
We don't need just a Christmas Saviour. An Easter Saviour. A Saviour to help when life throws us a punch! We NEED an EVERY DAY Saviour!
As believers in Jesus Christ, we DO have an EVERY DAY Saviour! He is with us EVERY hour, EVERY minute, EVERY second of EVERY day of the year!
Here are just a very few of the victories which belong to us if we know Christ as our Saviour.
Victories which Christ won for us through His death, burial and resurrection.
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
"That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ."
I John 1:3
"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."
"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen."
"Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus."
II Timothy 2:1
"For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
"The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
"Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
"Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?"
I John 5:5
"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."
A STEADFAST SAVIOUR!
That's just merely fifteen of the vast victories which were won for us because of Jesus' victory over death and the grave!
Well, I don't know about you, but those victories and the FACT that Jesus is ALWAYS with me makes it much easier to face tomorrow even with all its trials, hardships, illnesses and unknowns!
Let's celebrate, once again, that we serve a risen Saviour, not just on Easter, but on all the other 364 days of the year!
"Because He lives
Because He lives
Because I KNOW
And life IS worth
