Christians Advised To Proclaim Resurrection Of Jesus

Remembering the resurrection of Jesus is a way to renew daily hope that we have victory over sin. I love remembering all the times we did that as a family and seeing the younger generation discover the satisfaction in making an egg the "perfect" color with the "perfect" design and learning how to dye an egg with three colors all looking ideal. The belief that Christians have in Jesus' divinity is rooted in the moment of his resurrection. The Bible says it proves Jesus was the Son of God, who was crucified on Good Friday for the sins of the world. Palm Sunday is observed in memory of Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, where he was welcomed by the natives, with the waving of palm branches. And whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. "Do you believe this?"
"The Lord that rolled away the stone from the mouth of the tomb to put the enemy to shame will roll away all causes of economic hardship from our nation in the name of Jesus".
"The tombs also were opened".
Ayokunle who is also the President, Nigerian Baptist Convention urged Nigerians not to cease praying for the country and those who are at the helm of affiars as they confront the challenges facing the populace.

Last Sunday, during worship, many Egyptian Christians were wounded or killed in two bomb blasts.
St. John's parishioners said Easter has a special meaning. "Our hearts can be filled with gladness As hearts rejoice and sing".
"Easter is a time to celebrate how God's love and presence in this world is greater than anything we can ever face or go through in life and death", said Rev. Charlie Palmer, pastor for Treasure Hills Presbyterian Church in Harlingen.
Easter celebrations must be seen in the light of the Jewish "Passover" - Greek, Pascha - commemorating the Exodus "passing over" from Egyptian slavery to freedom, darkness to light, death to new life.
