Just in case you weren’t paying attention to the Easter message this Sunday. I know that there are seasons where hearing the Easter message feels like just another Easter message.
It is like the seasons in our life where we may miss connecting with the Word of God.
Well, here is a message for you to encourage you with 3 reminders all seasoned Christians need to know.

Reminder #1: He Is Faithful
8 Then they remembered that he had said this. 9 So they rushed back from the tomb to tell his eleven disciples—and everyone else—what had happened. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and several other women who told the apostles what had happened. 11 But the story sounded like nonsense to the men, so they didn’t believe it. 12 However, Peter jumped up and ran to the tomb to look. Stooping, he peered in and saw the empty linen wrappings; then he went home again, wondering what had happened.
Reminder #2: He Is With Us
36 And just as they were telling about it, Jesus himself was suddenly standing there among them. “Peace be with you,” he said. 37 But the whole group was startled and frightened, thinking they were seeing a ghost!
38 “Why are you frightened?” he asked. “Why are your hearts filled with doubt? 39 Look at my hands. Look at my feet. You can see that it’s really me. Touch me and make sure that I am not a ghost, because ghosts don’t have bodies, as you see that I do.” 40 As he spoke, he showed them his hands and his feet.
41 Still they stood there in disbelief, filled with joy and wonder. Then he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he ate it as they watched.
Reminder #3: We Have What It Takes
49 “And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.”
26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
“But for a seasoned believer, it is a reminder point that we get when hear the Easter message. If we hear it. And we must remember the hope that we have. That’s what Easter is about; the promise fulfilled that we can have hope. So ,what I’m really going to dig into is the day between Crucifixion day and Resurrection day. Crucifixion day on Friday, Good Friday, and Resurrection day which is Easter, Sunday. But the day in between, that’s the day that I think that gets a lot of us stuck. Especially if you were to take the grand metaphor of our lives. Saturday sucks. It really does.”
