Easter: Anyaso urge Christians to emulate Christ, affirm hope of everlasting life

While Sri Lanka's minority Christian community appeared to be the main target of Sunday's apparently coordinated bombings, terror attacks have not been confined to Christians.

He was delivering a summon on Easter Sunday in the Upper West Regional capital where hundreds of worshippers converged at the Wa Assemblies of God (AG) Church to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Meanwhile, the city police, along with intelligence officials, have alerted all the State's police units to take precautionary measures and thwart any untoward incidents.

"All Nigerians should believe in Christ and never lose hope, don't commit suicide, do not despair, God conquered death so what else can He not do for us, let's always love one another irrespective of tribe, religion or status", he said.

In a goodwill message to mark Easter, Razak said its celebration offered Christians opportunity to chart a new beginning, considering the successful conduct of the general election and the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Governor Bello urged Christians in the state to live a Christ-like life by making sacrifices that would ensure growth and development of the state.

In the faith, Jesus is the son of God, who was sinless.

The Head Pastor of Wa Revival Assembly of Assemblies of God Church, Reverend Robert Akolbugri, has enjoined followers of Christ to hold steadfast the celebration of Easter since "Christianity without Easter celebration is a mirage".

The Balogun General of Epe, Chief Lanre Razak, has urged Christians to imbibe the virtues of love, faith, trust, selflessness and perseverance demonstrated by Jesus Christ, in order to achieve a better society.

"Easter is very important to Christendom because the resurrection has given us victory, love, peace, faith, protection, among other good things", he said.

"If Jesus didn't resurrect, we will still be in sin, the Jewish leaders chose to make up the story that it never happened, but on the third day after his death He rose, today He is alive and reigns eternally".

"I am thankful that Jesus paid the price and died on my behalf but resurrected, I commit to do well and avoid sin with hope that I will see Him in eternal life", said Erenestine Mukakarisa, who prayed from Saint Michel Cathedral in Kigali.
