Easter Message 2011

This Easter I am reminded of the writings of St Augustine. St. Augustine once said “we are the people of resurrection”. This means that, when we place the Risen Christ at the centre of our lives, we will become his own people and we will call him “Lord” just like the Early Christians did. Jesus is everywhere around us because he defeated death; He is omnipresent and we remember this every Easter.

In order to become the people of resurrection we have to sanctify Jesus as the Lord of our lives. We must do what the Bible says in 1 Peter 3,15: ”Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts”. If we offer our hearts to the Lord he will guide us and keep us but it’s important that we listen to his message. In the book of Revelation it says “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, then I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me.”

God created us in his own image and as we are created in his likeness, this means we have freedom. Let us use that freedom to open our hearts to the Lord. Let the Lord come in and
rule our hearts and our families this Easter. Through this, we can find true peace. Whenever Jesus appeared to his disciples he offered his peace and when we sanctify Jesus as Christ
in our own lives he will fill us with his peace; a peace that is possible only because Jesus will be alive in us. May I wish you all a very Happy Easter.
