We are to the celebration of our Lord rising from the dead. We should be excited about this! He died, for each of us personally, and now He LIVES! That is something to be excited about! That IS something to celebrate!!
How much time do we give to it? How much time do we take sharing about how we see the Risen Christ? Is it "only" the time we are in worship on Easter? Is it "only" on Easter Sunday that we share, that we celebrate?
The Crane Lake Chapel has a wonderful hymn, that we sing on Easter Sunday (and plan to sing more often), that one of the previous clergy started when he was here. The title is "Every Morning is Easter Morning." We should be celebrating EVERY morning!
We need to take the "time," every morning, to celebrate the Risen Christ with us. Emmanuel, God WITH us is definitely something to celebrate. It is something to take the TIME to not just celebrate but to strengthen the relationship. It is something to take the TIME to share with others.
Let us take the time to celebrate!! He is risen! He IS risen, indeed!
