Easter Quotes: “Let Him Easter in Us” – Gerard Manley Hopkins

“Let Him easter in us, be a dayspring to the dimness of us, be a crimson-cresseted east.”

― Gerard Manley Hopkins

***

I’ve never thought of using “Easter” as a verb, asking Jesus to “Easter” in me.  But this quote from Gerard Manley Hopkins posted at Barnstorming today as part of a beautiful Easter reflection / devotional has made me pray just that:

“Jesus, Easter in me today” – renew in my heart and my life the reality that You are risen and that in You, I am a new creation, raised with You to new life.

I will post the devotional text from Barnstorming separately tomorrow.  But certainly go read it for yourselves now.  It’s beautiful and powerful.
