Millions of Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter
"Well the thing that was nice about this service today is because we are celebrating that Jesus has been resurrected from the dead". I am glad you asked.
This year the holiday coincides with when Western Christians celebrate it. Here are two I like.
It was the first Easter since the unveiling in March of renovations to the ornate, 19th-century shrine covering Jesus's tomb following a $3.7-million project that restored its stones to their original reddish-yellow and reinforced the heavily visited site. The world is on the brink of change and will look different soon. That connects with the church's view that every Sunday is a celebration of Easter.
In Russia, Easter is the biggest Christian celebration of the year.
Paul's past spiritual condition is just the same with all of us before coming to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as we were born sinners.
Easter also marked the end of the fifty day long season of Lent, of prayers and penitence recalling the final phase of Christ's life from his arrest and crucifixion, followed by resurrection. The greatest way we can do that is to do what the first disciples did. Still, he said, "I'm glad they're there".
The governor, who wished Nigerians lasting peace, love and the warmth of friendship, enjoined all to eschew hatred and bigotry, which Christ preached against before paying the ultimate price on the cross.
"It is well with you, our leaders at all levels of government and our nation in the name of Jesus Christ, " he said.
The good news is that the invitation to become one of his followers is open to all of us and if we come to him with sincerity, no matter who we are or what we have done, He will forgive us and give us eternal life. I preach Jesus born of a virgin, that while he was ideal and sinless in every way, He paid our sin debt when He was crucified, buried, and rose again the third day according to the Scripture.
I realize that even as I write this there are people who feel hopeless, who don't feel God's love in the midst of their troubled lives. "It's about what the resurrection did for us, about bringing us salvation". Let us come together as God's people and celebrate all that He has done for us. We pray especially for the dying that God will forgive their sins, reward them for the good they have done and unite them with the angels and saints in heaven.
