April 2nd, 2024.

As with almost every holiday we celebrate, there is a build-up of anticipation. Eventually, the holiday arrives – and the day after, we move on with life, focused on the next big thing.

Easter is no exception.

Here's the problem with that… When we celebrate Easter, we are celebrating the greatest sacrifice ever made. Throughout the day and the week prior, we're focused on how that sacrifice impacts our eternal life. We set our eyes on a father who sacrificed his son – and a son who sacrificed his life – all to save us from our sins.

That sacrifice is the reason we no longer have to fear death… And it's something that we should be thinking about every day.

Every day. Not just on Easter or the week before, but every day.

Yes, Easter Sunday has come and gone. We spent time worshiping at our churches. We reflected for a day on that sacrifice that Jesus made. Families sat down and shared meals. Then, the dishes were put away, and the Easter decorations were put back into storage.

Our call for each of you today is simple. Don't put the resurrection, or the sacrifice Christ made for us and our families, in storage. Keep it front and center. Reflect on it daily. Remember why this one day each year matters so much, and celebrate Easter every day.

Here's one verse we can all keep coming back to.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." - John 3:16, NIV

Reflect on this every morning. Start your quiet time with it. Change the beginning to read, "For God so loved YOU…" When we do this, we are creating space in our lives for Easter and the resurrection to maintain their place and importance among all the other distractions and busyness that the world will throw at us.

Brothers, don't put the resurrection in storage. Share it with your wives and your children and your family and friends. Talk about it with your coworkers. Let the people in your circle know what it means to you and what it means to them as well.

Be a man who shares Jesus and what He's done for you.

Celebrate Easter every day.
