Easter is a wonderful celebration of life, victory and genuine love!! And it seems to me that there is often a little bit of a “let down” after Easter. – kind of like, “Whew! Jesus rose from the dead, glad that He conquered death, let’s move on.” This year, however, is a little different for me.
I’m reminded what Jesus told His disciples in John 16:7 that it was to their advantage for Jesus to go away so that the Helper could come & give us HELP. When Jesus was raised from the dead, He breathed on His followers in John 20:22 and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit!”
So here’s the overwhelmingly GREAT NEWS about Jesus raising from the dead – not only did Jesus conquer death but we now have the great Helper with us in our daily living! Let’s never minimize the importance of the Helper being with us!!
