Move Forward to a Holy Response
How have things been going for you now that Easter is over?
Or should I instead say, "How are things going, since you know Easter is just the beginning?
It's easy to establish a sense of finality, once we celebrate the events of the resurrection. And that finality can sometimes lead us to feel like Easter will follow us through the rest of the year until we arrive at Advent, to start the new Christian year.
Instead, why not take a few minutes to mobilize yourself for reflection, and then action? Receiving the good news that Jesus is alive, and alive in us, can propel us into a bolder approach to the days that come.
We can evaluate every single thing that happens in our lives and world around us in a new context.
Take a moment to consider this. Read the devotional now...
"Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me."
