One of the very last words uttered by Jesus Christ on the cross, “It is finished” in John 19:30, (which means paid in full) is one of the most important and poignant. Jesus’ crucifixion signifies that death has been put to dead. Salvation has come to the world
On behalf of my family and good people of Barkin Ladi/Riyom Federal Constituency, I write to felicitate with Christians across the World on the occasion of Easter celebration commemorating the crucifixion and and most importantly resurrection of Christ which is the central truth of the Christian faith. The importance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ cannot be overemphasized. Without the resurrection there is no Christianity.
This period is one of sober reflection appreciating and honoring God for His redemptive work and love towards mankind.
Despite the global coronavirus pandemic, may our lives be true reflection of Jesus Christ who came and died for mankind.
This is wishing us a hitch free celebration in love and total obedience to God and adherence to the preventive measures and directives put in place to stem the tide of COVID-19.
Stay safe, avoid spread of COVID-19 and save lives.
