As we prepared our hearts to worship on Easter Sunday, one of the pastors at my church made the statement, “The only day our celebration should exceed Easter is when Jesus comes back.” That really opened some doors in my heart. I had never viewed Easter as a raucous celebration, whether because I was raised to dress up on Easter, or because it’s usually a serious time. But I loved that idea. We are not just honoring Jesus. Not just saying thanks. We are celebrating the greatest event in human history, only to possibly be eclipsed by the return of Christ. Amazing!

So how are you celebrating?
