IMPHAL, April 23: The Manipur Baptist Church has sent in its greetings to the people of the state on the auspicious occassion of Easter Sunday.
A release signed by Rev. L. Simon Raomai, Pastor MBC centre church states that As we celebrate Easter, the resurrection of Jesus Christ, let eternal love, hope, joy & selfless sacrifice be resurrected in our hearts and in our land. The whole world joins us in celebrating this greatest event of history, the greatest miracle of all times.
It further stated that Easter is the most important day of the year on which Christ rose from the death 2010 years ago. It ranks above Christmas in religious significance and importance. It heralds the dawn of a new era of faith and peace.
If Easter says anything to us today, it says this: You can put truth in a grave, but it won`t stay there. You can nail it to a cross, wrap it in winding sheets and shut it up in a tomb, but it will rise!
The great gift of Easter is hope – Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake. It is a time to activiate our faith, achieve our dreams and increase in God`s favour.
Easter tells us that life is to be interpreted not simply in terms of things but in terms of ideals. It reminds us afresh that we can`t have faith if we don`t first have hope. We believe that when we have that hope, it allows God to do great things.
May this wondrous event give us a good reason to feel encouraged even when the surrounding circumstances of life may seem gloomy or even desparate.
Let the joy of resurrection lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness.Let this year`s Easter message be all about carrying on the legacy of Jesus Christ – the legacy of compassion, love and forgiveness.
Let the resurrection of Christ give our lives a new meaning and the opportunity to start over, no matter what our circumstances.
Wish you all a very joyous and blessed Easter, the release added.
