Easter or Resurrection?

Easter and The Resurrection   "I am the resurrection and the life..."  Jesus   Easter is an event.  The resurrection is a person.  An event comes and goes.  A person is alive for as long as the quality of their life permits.  The quality of a resurrected life is forever.   When we reduce our celebration of Easter to an event on a calendar instead of celebrating the quality of life that now lives in us, we lose the power of the resurrection.   The resurrection is as powerful today as it was on the day Jesus defeated death and the grave for all of us.   Today is not Easter.  Today is resurrection.  Tomorrow will be resurrection.  Ten thousand years from now will be resurrection.  Because Christ lives in each of us who have believed Him and received Him every moment is resurrection.   The resurrection lives in you.  Rise!
