SERMONETTE

The Days after Easter/Resurrection Day

I love Easter (and I don't even mind if you prefer to call it Resurrection Day). Such a joyous day, even for pew warmers and non-Christians. Beautiful Easter lilies, daffodils, tulips, and other lovely spring flowers abound. Families get together and smiles are everywhere evident.

But the next day and days? Hey, you did your obligatory once-a-year or twice-a-year visit to the church.
Monday--back to work, pay the bills, clean the house, pick up after the kids, fix meals, wash clothes. Ho-hum, back to everyday life.

Where did the rejoicing go?

The rest of the year, sometimes folks are too busy to go to church, too tired to get up early, too hung over from Saturday night.

Too busy to keep God in their lives. Too tired to listen for His voice. Too hung over to be a part of the Christian Life. It's just not fun. Boring. And you you feel uncomfortable because it's obvious the pastor followed you around to get material for the sermon.

Sunday's just another day. Or Saturday, if that's your Sabbath. Why bother.

What do you say?
