Today is Easter Sunday and our final Lenten Challenge. On a normal Easter, most Christians gather in their churches for worship, and then, when possible, continue Easter fellowship with family and friends. This year is different. Because of COVID-19, we find ourselves physically separated from one another. There won’t be packed churches or large Easter Egg hunts or Easter lunches. However, it is still Easter—the day Christians celebrate that our God is triumphant over the power of sin and death. It is still the day we rejoice that nothing can separate us from our Lord.
Your Challenge for this day is to reflect on an Easter memory that you have. It can be poignant, spiritual, or just funny. But think back over previous Easters and find what was most meaningful for you. If you want to share a story in the comments, that would be wonderful.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
