Next Sunday is Easter.
For many, this week is full of activity in preparation for it.
Planning the Easter dinner,
shopping for it,
and gathering things for Easter baskets.
Maybe even purchasing new Easter clothes.
All of that on top of our usual activities.
Let us not forget to take the time to contemplate what Easter mean for us.
This is from my church's bulletin.
May we use this in the days leading up to the celebration of the most amazing gift!
"Take some time and thank God for this week and all it signifies. Rest in the reality of Christ's finished work on the cross. If you are in Christ, you stand before God innocent. Sit in the truth of the empty tomb and the new, fearless life that God has opened up for you. Respond to the vivid display of God's tremendous love for you and know that you are received in this moment."
