THE ETERNAL SUNRISE 

What comes after Easter? 

“But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn that shines brighter and brighter until the full day.” – Proverbs 4:18

What comes after Easter? Well, … more and more of Easter, for Easter is an

Eternal Sunrise that comes day after day until the fullness of Forever.

On Easter morning, the sunrise rolled ‘round the Earth, mile by mile, moment by moment, time zone by time zone, nation by nation. The Easter sunrise was not one moment but rather an ongoing moment, a slow yet steady bringing of Morning Light to the world, revealing in the Light more and more of the world.

The Easter Progress through human history is a process much like sunshine on a newly seeded barley field. With each new day, more sunshine is added to that patch of the Earth, beckoning the seed to grow toward the Light. Within that seed is the “instinct” to awaken to the invitation of the Light. And with each passing day, in the accumulation of sunrises, the empty barley field becomes a glorious harvest.

Easter is more process than event. Easter is more a process of growth and transformation than a one-day celebration. Easter is the Christian experience of being awakened each day by the ongoing call to take a few more steps toward that More Perfect Love, the Love that transforms by way of the bestowing of grace …. Day after day after day.

What comes after Easter? Well … more and more of Easter.

    Yes, Easter is new life and growth every day and not an event in History. Something, I only understood last year and yet did not grasp it till I read it again and somehow, the dear Lord had finally got this old brain to understand. Your explanation brought more joy to the heart. Thank you!
