Easter is more than one day.

“I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised
[Jesus] from the dead.”
Philippians 3:10 New Living Translation
Thousands of people drive by Oregon’s scenic Multnomah Falls every day. This amazing waterfall is extremely easy to reach. You can’t miss it when you’re driving east or west on Interstate 84, yet many people do.
The same applies to our celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. Easter is over and it’s time to move on, right? Not so fast.
Many people observe Easter in much the same way people view Multnomah Falls. Most people catch a one second glimpse of it from the freeway of life and that’s it.
There is time for us to stop and view the beauty of Jesus’ victory over death in the Easter season, a season that lasts forty-nine days.
It takes time to know someone or something. May we take the time to know the power of Jesus’ resurrection.
