Speaking from my own personal life and experience, after Easter celebration I go back to living my regular schedule, doing the same things I did the week before, not dwelling on Christ as much as I should be and so on. During the time of Easter our emotions start to rise and we feel as if we are closer to God than ever; but in reality you feel that way you do because you saw a clip of Jesus getting whipped by soldiers and it made you sad.
This is an encouragement to the saints in the body of Christ, don’t let this be something that just happens once a year and then you forget about him until the next year. Let your eyes continually be fixed on Jesus (Heb 12:2), Consistently grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ (2 Pet 3:18), Fight the good fight of faith (1 Tim 6:12), Remain pure in heart (Matt 5:8), Remember that you are dead to sin, and alive to God (Rom 6:11).

Our foundation in Christianity is all about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He died so we can live, and he rose to show we have victory over death through him. If you think there is something you can’t overcome because you are too deep in, well…For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace. (Rom 6:14) If you truly believe nobody loves you, well… By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. (1 John 3:16)

If you tried so hard to be good and do good but believe that if God came back right now for his elect, you wouldn’t be part of them, well… “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). God has already done all of the work. All you must do is receive, in faith, the salvation God offers (Ephesians 2:8-9). Fully trust in Jesus alone as the payment for your sins. Believe in Him, and you will not perish (John 3:16). God is offering you salvation as a gift. All you have to do is accept it. Jesus is the way of salvation (John 14:6).
