You know, Chad, each week we as Christians meet on Sunday. In other words, Easter Sunday is tied to the transitions of nature, so that the date moves from year to year. Here are two I like.

The post Easter Message: Renew covenant with God- Gbenga Daniel appeared first on Vanguard News. Something new is happening. Second, Easter doesn't have a specific date.

The eggs are meant to symbolise new life. The Christian devotees who celebrate the Easter with great devotion demonstrate that incomparable supreme sacrifice was made in order to rise above the humans and achieve divinity. "Christmas and Easter give us full churches, sometimes overflowing", said Monsignor Michael Becker, pastor of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Lakemont.

Parishioner Sabrina Evans, of Ashtabula, said she was moved to come to Easter services because she felt thankful for the resurrection.

Churches around the city wore a festive look on Sunday as devotees gathered to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ after his crucifixion on Good Friday. That first day of the week is the day that we worship.

Rev Canon Erisa Grace Sentongo who led the intercession and Rev. Canon Geoffrey Byarugaba who led the service thanked God for the lives of the Christians and prayed for their security. "In fact, He is going ahead of you to Galilee; you will see Him there.' Listen, I have told you".

The good news is that the invitation to become one of his followers is open to all of us and if we come to him with sincerity, no matter who we are or what we have done, He will forgive us and give us eternal life.

The women strolled to the tomb that morning expecting to find it just as they had last seen it: with Roman guards stationed outside and Jesus still dead inside.

As we commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we should remember the many threats facing Christians today. Coming together as a community, we invite you to join us during this Holy season when our Lord speaks to us and sets us on our journey. "Welcome the love of God into your life". God's blessings and graces await each of us, but we must do our part to receive them. The question is, have you received the gift of salvation afforded us through this unbelievable gift of God?
