Christians in Bole on Sunday joined millions of the faith worldwide to mark Easter, the resurrection of Jesus Christ who was crucified dead at the Mount Calvary about 2000 years ago.
Easter symbolises the victory of Christ over death and in Bole hundreds of Christians wearing white clothes, signifying victory filled chapels to worship and praise God.
A number of Churches, which are holding conventions, would wind up their activities after church services on April 17, 2022.
Pastor Victor Ageneh of the Bole Deeper Christian Life Ministry sharing the church’s Easter message through Yagbon Radio urged christians not to return to their sins after Jesus Christ had laid down his life on the cross for the atonement of their sinful ways.
He said: “Easter is not only a matter of being saved from our sins but the most important of it is that, we remember Christ dying on the cross and refrain from returning to our sinful ways.
He said if Christians should return to their sinful ways, that would mean crucifying Christ for the second time, while questioning if Jesus’ blood was not expensive enough for mankind.
Pastor Victor reiterated that, without the resurrection of Christ, his death would have been meaningless adding that, if the Lord had not resurrected, our faith would have been in vain”.
He said the resurrection signified Christ’s victory over death and sin and the setting of mankind free from his sins.
The clergyman further said Easter was cherished and held in solemnity as that was the time God reconciled with man using the greatest sacrifice.
He called on Christians to be humble as Christ humbled himself even unto his death on the cross.
He asked Christians to let Easter renew their relationship with God by surrendering their lives to Jesus Christ.
Pastor Victor, said they should do this by eschewing all immoral lifestyles that create obstacles between them and the love of God.
