Do you want to know one of my favorite things about Easter? After celebrating my risen Savior, I love that Easter takes place (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere!) in the spring. The spring is a time of new growth, thawing out from the coldness of winter, cleaning, opening windows, welcoming longer days, spotting baby animals in the wild, and stepping into a sense of fresh beginnings. For me, spring walks hand-in-hand with Easter to represent the core of our faith: resurrection. Jesus rose from the dead to bring us new life.
But I love that God didn’t stop with just one resurrection. We serve a God who is in the business of resurrection.
