What happens when all of the hoopla is over? When the congregations have depleted and the pews/seating in the church is back to normal? Christian Books – Donna Louis – After The Celebration.

Easter Sunday and Palm Sunday have always traditionally had churches packed. People who are normally too busy for church seem to remember Proverbs 22:6, Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it. If when you were a child and your parents always took you to church on these special dates you will remember this and attend. Churches make it so easy to attend with the multiple services they offer on Easter Sunday. My church for example had four services with the last one starting at 1:30pm. They also did a wonderful play depiction. Christian Books – Donna Louis – After The Celebration.

Why is it so easy to revert back to our old ways after two weeks? Why are we inclined to feel that it is fine to put GOD and church on the back burner after Easter and Palm Sunday?

If we want GOD to show up in our homes and lives regularly with blessings then we need to show up with praise and worship in his  home regularly! Christian Books – Donna Louis – After The Celebration.
