In several weeks we will be starting the Festival of Easter. For some Christians the season of Easter has already begun, so before it flashes before your eyes it would be good to consider how you can make the most of this special time:
1. Make a spiritual plan for Easter. How will you celebrate and recall the events of that time? You can plan to attend Easter services, read the Easter scriptures in the Bible, watch a Life of Jesus movie over the weekend, or if younger attend an Easter Camp. You could design your own special Easter quiet time or retreat with Jesus.
2. Share it! Who will you invite to share your Easter experience with? Easter services usually tell the gospel story. Who are you praying for? Who will you invite or reach out to? Could you have them over for a meal with other church friends as well?
3. Renew. We are entering the spiritually most productive period of the year. There is a wider community to be served. There are people who have yet to meet Jesus. They could be sitting right beside you. There are church and personal needs that you can make a difference with. As you rededicate your life to Christ at Easter, what is the next step He is calling you to? Write it down in your spiritual journal.
