The passionate House of Assembly Member Representing Ekwusigo State Constituency who doubles as the Minority Leader of Anambra State House of Assembly in the Person of Hon.Onyebuchi Offor sends an Easter Message to his constituents and to all citizens of Anambra State as Christians all over the world celebrates the Death and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In his message, he stated ……….
“The Holy week which marks the beginning of the celebration of Easter is a period when Christians all over the world commemorate the Passion and the death of our Lord Jesus Christ by crucifixion outside the walls of the old City of Jerusalem where Christ laid down the ground rules of a life of sacrificial love.
This period reminds Christians on the need to recognize the significance and centrality of the Cross as the symbol of sacrificial love and compassion. It is a period to meditate on the paradox of Christ’s sufferings as a precursor of glad tidings. It is also a moment of sobriety and a time to reflect on the true value of the Cross of Calvary on which the Christian faith is grounded.
Christians should use this opportunity to redirect their attention towards a new dedication to promoting the prize of salvation which Christ has bequeathed by giving a helping hand to others, materially and financially help the poor & indigent families and widows.
Today, the world is stuck by large scale deprivation, devastation, destitution and suffering. Christians should therefore, engage in genuine introspection on whether they have truly represented and demonstrated the virtues of Christ in building a society worthy of his legacy of Justice, fortitude, humility, love and sacrifice.
As we celebrate this year’s Easter period, may the lessons of love and sacrifice which Christ embodied find a fertile ground in our hearts and have a strong believe in God that this Covid-19 Epidemic will surely pass away.”
