Easter Spiritual Resources

on March 8, 2012

How can we prepare our hearts for Easter, the most important Christian holiday of the year? We can revisit the familiar spiritual resources and experiences of Easters past, and learn about some new ones from the spiritual journey of a friend. Listed below is a partial recollection of things through the years that have opened the eyes of my heart to the miracle of Easter. I hope to share these resources so that they will serve you too this spring ……to help focus, remind, and offer meditation on the cross, the blood, the resurrection all day long, even flooding into your “free time” or “down time”. I am sure you too have a list of influences that have shaped your perception. What if we could make one comprehensive list between us all……..as a way to share what we have been given and bless each other? Take a moment friends to add any book, song, movie, etc. to the list that has caused you to behold Jesus face to face, caused your understanding to become less dim than before.

May we come to see Him more clearly in our quest for vision this season, and find ourselves transformed into His image glory by glory.
