The Easter Life

We are in the second week of Easter, the second week of Resurrection. In the church year, we celebrate Easter for seven weeks until Pentecost when we celebrate the arrival of the Holy Spirit in power. But in reality, not just in the re-enactment of the church year, we celebrate Easter Resurrection and Pentecost Power every Sunday. We are the church and we live in the power of the Holy Spirit.

The same power that raised Christ from the dead has also raised you from the humility of confession to the glory of forgiveness. And that confession and forgiveness has endowed you with the grace and power to do all that God has called you to do in Jesus Christ. That is the Easter Life.
