When the Music Stops

For those who like music, there’s a deadly pause after you hear a favorite song. The radio quickly fills in the space with a commercial, but in real life when the music stops we’re often at a loss to know what to do next. In a sense, it’s the same with Easter. What do you do after Easter? What can possibly top the resurrection?

The disciples must have felt much the same thing. They saw Jesus crucified dead, then wonderfully resurrected! They were excited, but then again, they expected Jesus to keep stoking their fire. The angel summarized it at the ascension: “Why do you stand there looking into the sky?”

The power of the resurrection is finally, knowing Jesus, and believing that He rose from the dead, victorious, and then getting on with life according to His mandate…Go! Get with it. Do something.

We don’t know in full what Jesus taught them during His periodic appearances those days before His ascension. But, we can be pretty sure, given what He taught before, that He was coaching them into the game of life. Not as frightened rookies, but rather, as seasoned disciples who would be empowered by the Holy Spirit.

It’s the same for us. We live this side of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit is with us, and He is our Helper, our Guide, our Comforter. If you don’t feel too holy, and your post-resurrection experience is a bit bland, then it’s time to “get busy.”

The music stopped…but we’re still dancing.
