Post-Easter Blues


I sometimes think the Easter worship service is somewhat like a wedding. Everyone works so hard to make it a special and meaningful day. The only problem with this is the build-up to Easter that occurs throughout Lent, and the day's celebration might leave some feeling worn out and let down. How do we move on from Easter Sunday? First, remember that Easter in the Christian Church is a season of 50 days, not just one day. What happens during these 50 days? Jesus makes numerous visits to believers for 40 days before he ascends to "sit at the right hand of the Father." Second, remember the disciples continued to undergo a period of transformation. They were shaking off fear and taking on their new roles as apostles. They also were beginning to gather disciples. We, too, could use the Easter season to complete the Great Commission, which includes offering an invitation, welcoming those who show us, and living as one body. Third, during the Easter season, those who had doubts looked for evidence of the risen Lord. Though we call him Doubting Thomas, we should recognize his courage in asking for evidence and declaring Jesus as Lord and Messiah. We could also be looking for evidence of resurrection power in our lives and the lives of others. There is so much more to be done, so much more to be celebrated during the Easter season. Unlike a wedding, your efforts do not have to be perfect. God accepts you and everything you do because our salvation has already been secured through Jesus' birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension. Let's keep the party going! Amen.
