EASTER MESSAGE BY DISTRICT APOSTLE
My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,
As the Christian Community across the world celebrates
Easter, we join them in gratitude for preserving a tradition of
excellence and a legacy of care for humanity that Jesus Christ
even before, during and after his death, and resurrection. Therefore,
us of the need to create trust, show compassion, build stability and
that Jesus brought to his followers (disciples). Even to this day, we
followers of His faith in our time, are admonished to bring out and
same values that should outlast our human life.
As we commemorate the crucifixion, death and resurrection
Jesus, we are convinced beyond any doubt that the most wonderful thing
Easter brings is knowing that our Lord Jesus Christ died and rose again
humankind. This He did just for us to gain entry into the heavenly
prepared for those who are preparing to receive Him on his return as
in John 14:3; which says and I quote “And
if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you
Myself; that where I am, there you may be also”.
wait for His return, lets us continue to overcome evil and attain
Christ by remaining unshakable in God’s fear. Our
Lord and saviour conquered and lives and we too shall come out
live with the help of Jesus!
brothers and sisters, Easter
is a period of transformation from death to life based on love because
the most trying moment on the cross, Jesus fulfilled this as outlined
23:34 when he said, and I quote, “Father,
forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” In a Christian
like ours, we need to hear more such messages of love and forgiveness
especially given the political tension and violence that is building up
nation. Rather than condemning and passing judgement, let us endevour
what Jesus did by proclaiming to one another- my peace I
give to you! He led by example, and this is also
expected from all of us the leaders and the led alike, whether in
social, economic or political spheres of life.
this period of Easter and beyond, this example must resonate in our
all times irrespective of the circumstances and the amount of
may suffer. Therefore, in reflecting on the message for Easter, I am
to take this opportunity to wish our country, Zambia much love and
especially as we draw closer to the elections that will take place on 11th
August, 2016. For our Lord said, “Blessed are the
peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God”. It means we
just focus on receiving peace from others but we must be in the
creating peaceful environments in homes, communities and the nation at
also wish similar love and peace to Malawi and Zimbabwe, where there
elections and indeed to the whole world.
God bless us all!
