It’s been a little while since Easter now. All the signs are out of the shops and they have moved on to the next advertising opportunity.
Bakers have reduced their production of hot cross buns and the eggs have been removed from the shelves.
But there are still plenty of chocolate Easter eggs around my house. Our children were much more interested in the hunt than eating their bounty this year and so there’s still eggs left over.
So, while most other people have moved on from Easter, I am still reminded as I sit down to nibble on a couple of chocolate eggs.
While I’m more than happy to consume chocolate to remember Easter it has made me realise that we should be remembering Easter all throughout the year whether we have left over eggs or not. The whole basis of our faith is the Easter story and so it’s not just something we should visit once a year.
Maybe we should buy 365 Easter eggs when they’re on sale and eat one every single day of the year to remind us of Jesus’ love and sacrifice for us! There’s a worship practice I could certainly get used to – haha.
Easter is an incredible weekend of reflection on all that Jesus has taught us and how much He did for us. But let’s not just leave it on that weekend. Let’s remember to take that love and grace and sacrifice with us every day of the year.
Lord, Your ultimate sacrifice was on the cross but every single day You give to us. Your love and grace are never-ending and we thank You and praise You for that. Amen.
How can you remember Jesus’ love for you every single day?
