If you’re anything like me, you love Easter Sunday and the joy it brings, you love celebrating Jesus’ resurrection with family and friends, you love the church service and the special activities like Easter breakfast, and you love the Easter egg hunts with kids. And if you’re anything like me, it doesn’t take more than a couple weeks for the thrill of Easter to wear off, and it’s back to focusing on your own problems and your own efforts and forgetting how significant and amazing and awesome Jesus’ resurrection actually is. And if you’re anything like me, you really wish you knew how to change that.
Well, I’m no expert on this. I’m just another hungry beggar begging for bread, finding a feast in the most unlikely of places – a cross, a tomb, a book. My inclination is to eat to my fill at these places, but then go away satisfied and forget to go back until I’m starving all over again. Maybe you find yourself in the same place.
