Christians celebrate Easter across conflict-torn Mideast

After Constantine chose to Christianize the Empire, Easter was changed to represent Jesus.

"As Christians, we believe that Jesus has risen and our journey with our Lord has been renewed and therefore, it is important for us to forgive and forget all those that may have hurt us and seek forgiveness from all those that we might have hurt", he said.

Everyone who becomes a Christian does so because they believe that when Jesus was crucified on the cross, he paid the ultimate price for human sin, and that his resurrection enables anyone who believes in him to overcome sin and temptation. "So we want to play it to glorify him". "It's about God and family", Rodriquez said.

WOW! People really like to celebrate Easter. So All of that to say we are commemorating what Jesus did on the cross for us.

He said: "As the resurrection morning brought a day of joy and laughter back to the disciples, the future years shall be full of abundance in Nigeria and bring back our joy and celebration in our streets in the name of Jesus".

Quoting Matthew 28:1, Ntagali said women were the first evangelists, and should continue preaching the gospel of Christ to the world.

Luckily, many are able to make time for church services and an egg hunt or two. Many old religions had a Spring Goddess who lived in what is now Germany and knew her as Eastre.

As I began to reflect on this, I thought to myself, "There is a difference between Easter Sunday and Resurrection Sunday". Many of his followers reported seeing Jesus before his ascension to heaven to be with his Father. "As natural disaster came to help in removing all hindrances to the resurrection of Christ for a glorious dawn to emerge, the God of heaven will divinely intervene to bail our nation out of economic downturn in the name of Jesus". Jesus was blameless and lived a sinless life, a life that was ideal and a life that you and I could never live. "Because of this resurrection, we can have life instead of death; vitality instead of lack of energy; hope instead of despair and victory instead of defeat". For He has been resurrected, just as He said. Christ has died; Christ has risen; he died for our sins.

Fagbami said this during his Easter message entitled: "The Dawn of a New Order" at the Basilica of Grace Anglican Church, Apo, in Abuja on Sunday.

Chad: What is your favorite part of this time of year? "It's about what the resurrection did for us, about bringing us salvation".

This year the holiday was celebrated on the same day by both Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox worshippers.
