After Easter, then what?

Easter Sunday is a day in the Christian calendar where Christ followers around the globe commemorate and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

For some this is their once a year visit to church because of family commitment, tradition or it makes them have less guilt so they do it out of duty. So, for this group of people it just means life goes back to normal, of no gathering with other believers to worship God and to give or receive encouragement. The Apostle Paul addresses this type of routine in Hebrews 10:24-25 where it seems there were Christians who were not seeing the importance of regular coming together for worship. He says, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching”.

For many, we have learned the benefits of coming together with other believers. We literally celebrate Easter, or the resurrection of Jesus Christ every time we come together. We enjoy worshipping the Lord together and understand that we need encouragement from others and others need encouragement from us. Easter is a special day to remind us of what we ought to be doing all the time.

My personal opinion is this: if a person becomes a follower of Christ it is not because they chose to start going to church. In other words, going to church doesn’t save you, but once a person chooses to follow Jesus it should be a natural response to want to worship together with other believers.
