Is there something that can make Easter Sunday different from all the others? Doesn’t seem like it. Get up at the same time, get dressed, look for some clothes appropriate for church. At church it’s still a Sunday service, although the emphasis may be different.
After service, go home, have lunch, have a rest, What now? Usual day of rest. Potter in the yard, have supper, Go to bed. Has anything changed? Back to the same routine tomorrow, and for the rest of the week, and then church again next Sunday.
It’s a bit like Mother’s day. Is it only one day of the year we get to appreciate our mom? If we don’t appreciate her every day, our actions are a bit hollow, to say the least. And even if life tends to be a bit humdrum, every day aren’t we still living in the light of the resurrection?
For Christ is risen every Sunday, The Crucifixion and resurrection are not new today, just because it’s Easter Sunday. It is and should be just like any other Sunday. Every Sunday would be a sham without it. Imagine life on earth If Christ had not come?
Not just for Sunday either. Life everyday is not just existence for a further week, but joyful, because He came. Easter Sunday shouldn’t be different from other Sundays, or any other day of the week for that matter: His resurrection is evidence that we live in His grace towards us every day.
