Today is Easter Sunday.

To many Americans, Easter is a holiday centered on obligatory church visits, the Easter bunny, Easter egg hunts and other rituals used to celebrate "He is risen."

Once Monday rolls around, though, it's back to life as normal. Stress. Anxiety. Despair. The same job you hate to show up for.

But it shouldn't be like that - at all.

Easter is a beautiful day celebrating a fulfilled promise. You see, nearly 2,000 years ago a Jewish man claimed he was the Son of Man, the promised Messiah, the One who was to come and save the Israelites from more than 1,000 years of oppression.

More importantly, Jesus declared that the Kingdom of God had come to Earth (Matthew 4:17) and promised to forever reconcile humanity back to God. (John 14:6)
